This all depends on their age, and the reason for the visit, but it’s important they know that a psychologist is someone who helps people.
Whether it’s because they’re feeling sad or worried, having problems with friends, school or siblings – a psychologist is someone to talk to, who will help them learn how to cope and feel better.
A psychologist will listen to anything they have to say, and will always be there for help and support.
They should know that mums, dads and grown ups can go to psychologists – that it’s normal and nothing to worry about.
If you have concerns about speaking to your child about their visit, feel free to call and discuss your worries.
