Your child's happiness will be influenced by your own, although not exclusively so. Your concerns for his well being are genuine but remember that as parents, we are role models.
It is true that introducing another partner into your child's life should be done cautiously but you should know whether this person is fine to be included or not. Your needs matter as well as long as they don't interfere with your son's needs.
Although bringing your child to a psychologist may assist him in his confusion, at his age, what he needs most is his parents. Be there for him and do not ask him questions about whether you should take his dad back or not. This is not his decision to make and will feed him insecurities. Rather allow him to have a relationship with his father and be the mom. There is nothing more that he needs. In providing a stable, loving and consistent environment, your child will grow up happy and well adjusted.
I would rather suggest that you seek counselling for yourself to help you clarify your needs and be the best parent you can be.
