* ''WesternAnimation/RoughnecksStarshipTroopersChronicles'' had Dizzy being claustrophobic. With their survival on the line, the team's resident psychic "removed" her claustrophobia and made her a {{Badass}} again. It's a pretty dangerous procedure (as they point out to her before she consents to it) and they wouldn't dare try it if their lives weren't on the line. So instant psychic therapy isn't exactly an easy way out, just a fast one.

* The ComicBook/MartianManhunter had a deep seated fear of fire as his AchillesHeel, which made the second most powerful being in DCComics Earth vulnerable to matches. Thanks to some epiphany therapy with a flame powered hottie, he managed to remove the fear... only to discover it was a mental block placed by non-NeglectfulPrecursors to avoid his species becoming [[AlwaysChaoticEvil psychotic fire demons]] drunk on power.

* Similar to [[StarWars Darth Vader]] below, this is what happened to [[strike:Darth]] [[TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget Yomi]] from ''Anime/GaReiZero''.

But she did realize how much she loves her little sister Kagura [[spoiler: [[ShootTheDog as Kagura killed her to stop her]] RoaringRampageOfRevenge]], [[DyingAsYourself allowing her to die as herself]]. [[spoiler: This is repeated in the final volume of the manga.]]

* In ''FruitsBasket'', all of the Sohma family have deep-seated emotional problems, and while Tohru helps a number of them quite a lot, progress is realistically slow. For example, in the manga, [[spoiler: it seems like Tohru discovering Kyo's true form is going to be a case of EpiphanyTherapy, but Kyo is largely unchanged in the next volume - just somewhat happier and more trusting of Tohru. He still has major issues around being the cat from the Zodiac.]]

* Averted in ''VideoGame/BaldursGateIIShadowsOfAmn''. Each of the original romanceable characters have their own issues, and it takes ''a lot'' of time (and sensible dialogue choices) for whomever you choose to deal with his/her problems, let alone move past them. If you continue the romance through ''Throne of Bhaal'', this even becomes a DefiedTrope -- [[spoiler: your love interest is forced to confront a wraith masquerading as someone from his/her past that strikes at their deepest fear or doubt.]] Some of them even say that it will take more than comforting words or a good snuggle to help them get over it.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': Avertend in "It's Only A Paper Moon". Nog is suffering from PTSD and retreats into a holosuite fantasy. While the holosuite character of Vic Fontaine does force Nog to openly confront why he just can't handle reality right now, Nog is not instantly cured, in fact he straight out admits he's not okay, "But I'm going to be".

He quickly gets over this problem when he remembers that he can still torment ''Angel'', no matter what happens in the outside world.

-->'''Grace''': ''Kissing boy-me was a very loving gesture, but identifying the issue doesn't instantly free you of it...''
** A minor example with Susan. Her years of hating men were erased by spending one evening [[GenderSwap Gender Swapped]]. She'd been having second thoughts before then and she'd made male friends who, Tedd's ChivalrousPervert tendencies aside, were very moral people. That night ended up being the moment she truly accepted people could be cheating jerkasses regardless of gender.

** During the episode "The Beach", the villains have vented their individual examples of FreudianExcuse and are now feeling much better. So good in fact, that they gleefully trash the house and attack the guests of the cool teens who snubbed them.

[[spoiler: In the final episodes, it causes her epic VillainousBreakdown.]] Zuko, on the other hand, didn't get over his issues with that situation at the beach either. Uncle Iroh had been working on him for the entire 2 seasons, but he froze before taking the step that would've taken him completely through his HeelFaceTurn. He finally completes it a few episodes later.
** "The Guru." Aang, in order to master the Avatar state, has to unlock a series of chakras by letting go of various Earthly, negative emotions, such as his grief over being TheLastOfHisKind, and the fear of failure against the Fire Lord. Every one of these takes about twenty seconds. The next season shows that he hasn't truly conquered any of them. By the time of ''Legend of Korra'', we learn that he ''never'' got over his TheLastOfHisKind issues. He had three children and the only one he ''didn't'' neglect was the only airbender.
