* Though it's more of an InformedAbility, Nappa in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged''. He's a big, meat-heated brute that slaughters the heroes towards the end of the Saiyan Saga...and he mentions that ''he has a degree in child psychology''.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Reynir awoke to his mage powers after ending up LittleStowaway to an expedition in a ForbiddenZone. It just so happens that TheMedic Mikkel, who is basically the team therapist by default, is a FlatEarthAtheist and ReligionIsMagic is on of the reasons Reynir has powers in the first place. The setting includes ghosts capable of sucking the life out of human beings only visible to mages. The expedition including another mage and Reynir's own slowly developping powers are the only reasons the crew has yet to have any casualty by them. One of the stronger ones heavily implied that if Reynir returned home, it would follow Reynir there and kill all his loved ones. Meanwhile, Mikkel looks exasperated if Reynir mentions ghosts and calls Reynir's attempts at protective runes "decoration", all while otherwise genuinely caring about everyone's well-being, both physical and psychological. It's little wonder that after the aforemetioned threat to his family, Reynir resorts to using one of the two mages he can contact via TalkingInYourDreams as a sounding board, despite actually not knowing him that well (the one he's actually travelling with dislikes him, has NoSocialSkills and doesn't speak his language in the waking world).

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.

* 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.

* 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.
