How to help my daughter
Dear CS

Thanks for your prompt reply to my problem. I must admit that I did not think about councelling sessions for her, as she is a 3rd year Psychology student!!! She has such great plans for her future (or so she is always telling me) that I did not realize that she has low self esteem. I will suggest counselling to her....

Thanks again.

Dear Jenny,
I can assure you that psychology students are far from immune to needing counselling ! Not even psychologists are immune. And you could point out to her that at the very least she should be able to learn usefully about herself and about such problems, even if in the process she and her counsellor conclude that she personally has no particular problem. It'll be valuable practical experience for her !
And maybe print out Lindie's helpful and insighful message, and let her see it, for some valuable first-hand testimony on the value of this process !
