Added DiffLines:

* Averted in ''Webcomic/LsEmpire'' when Blumiere is forced to get some therapy after his [[VideoGame/SuperPaperMario second]] SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum. [[http://l-empire.smackjeeves.com/comics/1743376/slip-and-fight-pt-12/ Hypnotherapy, to be precise]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'': Averting this trope is the ''very first thing'' Misato sets out to do after [[PeggySue returning to the past]], ready to browbeat Commander Ikari into agreeing to it if necessary. [[spoiler:He agrees without putting up even token resistance, much to her surprise, because what Shinji thinks of as [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong "Operation Not Fuck Everything Up This Time"]] ultimately benefits him as well.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Zig-zagged in ''Webcomic/SexyLosers'': talk radio couple's counselor Dr. Lovetalk typically gives advice that is well-meant and intelligent, but completely inapplicable to the situations of her callers.

Added DiffLines:

* Averted and played straight at the same time in ''Literature/VoidDomain''. No therapists have shown up thus far, but one professor of the local WizardingSchool has offered to act as one or to find one for Eva. Presumably other characters as well.

* Averted in ''Webcomic/SleeplessDomain'', where a registration pamphlet explains that registered [[MagicalGirl magical girls]] all get their own therapist/counsellor.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Franchise/StarWars'', galactic medical science is pretty advanced when it comes to purely physical ailments. But the vast majority of the plot is driven by characters with glaring psychological problems who seem to have no formal support mechanisms whatsoever. The closest that the old Jedi Order had was Yoda, who generally seems to have counseled troubled Jedi to become TheSpock and not allow their emotions to get to them. TheDarkSide thrives thanks to this.

* Subverted in the ''Literature/{{Hannibal}}''. There ''is'' a therapist but he just makes things worse. Mason and Margot Verger are referred to Hannibal Lecter after Mason molests Margot. Lecter mutilates and cripples Mason and encourages Margot to kill him.

* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'': JustifiedTrope in the case of Merlin. This is maybe a thousand years before therapy was even invented. In fact, Merlin himself may have had to invent therapy out of necessity to deal with everything he goes through. He's basically taken on the role of therapist to all of his friends (FridgeBrilliance as to why he [[BecameTheirOwnAntithesis grows more manipulative and darker over the series]]; he shoulders A LOT of baggage).

Added DiffLines:

* Initially averted in ''[[VideoGame/TheCompanyOfMyself Fixation]]'' with the therapist Henry providing genuine help and support to the main characters, but after his death there doesn't seem to be anyone who replaces him and things go downhill for his former patients soon afterwards.
