* Dr. Delara Auzenne from VideoGame/DeusExMankindDivided at first appears to be Type 1. She's well-meaning and compassionate towards Task Force 29 staff she is in charge of psychologically examining and providing counsel to. She never loses her cool or professional attitude when Adam treats her with obvious distrust and snarkiness, and often voices concerns over the well-being of him and other agents. [[spoiler: She is revealed to be a high-ranking Illuminati member who currently serves as TheMole assigned to monitoring Adam Jensen and reporting directly to BigBad Lucius DeBeers and might also have been involved in tampering with Jensen's memory]]

Added DiffLines:

* Dr. Neblin, John's [[BadlyBatteredBabysitter unfortunate therapist]] in ''Series/IAmNotASerialKiller''. While in session with him, [[UnreliableNarrator John]] remarks that therapists are "so open-minded [he] sometimes wondered how they kept anything in there", implying that he sees Neblin as more of an ineffective type, but he's one of the few people who consistently believes in John and genuinely tries to help him, even answering a phone call at 2am and coming to get John because he sounds like he's in trouble.
--->''"Listen to me, John." said Dr. Neblin, more serious and intense than I'd ever heard him. "Listen to me. Are you listening?"''
--->''I squeezed my eyes shut and gritted my teeth. "It's not John anymore, it's Mr. Monster."''
--->''"No, it's not," said Neblin. "It's John. It's not John Wayne, or Mr. Monster, or anybody else, it's John. You're in control. Now, are you listening to me?"''
--->''I rocked back and forth. "Yes."''
--->''"Good." He said. "Now pay very close attention: [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre you are not a monster. You are not a demon. You are not a killer. You are a good person, with a strong will and a high moral code]]. Whatever you've done, you can get through it. We can make it right again."''

to:

* In ''VisualNovel/MysticMessenger'', the characters most in need of psychological help ([[spoiler:Rika and Saeran]]) ''do'' see therapists but the therapists are depicted as completely unable to help them. Apparently in the world of ''Mystic Messenger'', multiple therapists are so incompetent that they couldn't tell that a clearly-suffering patient was mentally ill and a broken person just needs ThePowerOfLove from [[spoiler:their twin brother]] to heal instead of useless therapy!

* Rare example of the Harmful Shrink as one of the good guys: Dr. Vail, psychologist for Literature/DreamPark in ''The Barsoom Project'', lacks empathy and is willing to risk others' sanity in order to protect the Park (because where else would he have absolute control of subjects' experiences?). Be ''very'' glad he's on the hero's side, because what he does to the villains in the end ain't pretty....
