I think that learning to solve your own issues is important in many
cases. Instantly "solving" people's problems could be very counter
productive in the long term as without some kind of internal struggle,
would people ever develop a very complex or solid identity?

But I do think that in certian cases it could be useful to simply
"wash it all away".
