The mental health field is a complicated one. And fiction writers aren't necessarily fond of complicated real-life concepts. That's why you get tropes such as AllPsychologyIsFreudian. When even that is too much, you'll see ThereAreNoPsychologists.

* Dr. Edward Roivas of ''VideoGame/EternalDarkness''. Quickly opens up to the prospect of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s trying to destroy the human race and sets into motion a series of events to get his granddaughter to successfully learn about and stop them.

* Doctor Lovetalk from ''Webcomic/SexyLosers'' would be a good radio sex therapist if her advice actually reflected the needs of her callers. As it is, they're either dishonest about their problems, or have interests [[{{Squick}} too strange and disgusting]] even for her.

* Doc Samson in the MarvelUniverse. His good intentions often lead to poor results :
** He actually managed to merge various versions of the Hulk in one personality, but lied about the result being the real Banner.
** He was the Hulk's shrink during the Pantheon saga. In the end, Banner completely fell apart and Fury commented that Samson was acting more like his own patient.
** His regression therapy of the Punisher was hijacked by a third party and led to Castle going berserk and seemingly killing Nick Fury.
** In his own limited series, he tried TalkingDownTheSuicidal, only for said suicidal to jump when Samson was done talking.



* Doc Samson in the MarvelUniverse.

* Dr. Noelle Akopian of ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'' is in a rather unfortunate position, being smart, compassionate, and [[OnlySaneMan mostly separated from all the drama and thus able to be objective]]... but having ''[[SelectiveObliviousness Rebecca]]'' for a client. In any other romantic comedy, she'd be the Awesome kind, but since she's counselling the RomanticFalseLead, her (good) advice falls on deaf ears, forcing her into the role of the Ineffective shrink, and TheIgnoredExpert. By the second season, she's realized that Rebecca will never take her advice, and only bothers because she needs money for a new kayak.

* Ezri Dax in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''. She starts out not being that good, but she figures out how to treat Garak's claustrophobia before the end of the episode. Granted, she has a ''huge'' amount of issues herself (not least having very recently ''[[BizarreAlienBiology gained an entirely new]] [[BizarreAlienPsychology second personality]] [[TheNthDoctor with numerous lifetimes of experience]]'' in addition to her own), on top of having been in training just a few weeks before her transfer.
