Are there any myths about beings/items/creatures that talked with people in a friendly way? Almost as if the being was a therapist to the human or something? I can think of the caladrius that physically took away illness, but is there something like this that relieves more emotional/mental issues?

EDIT: I’m looking for any specific story from any mythology or legend or folklore. I’m just looking for a name or list of these stories if possible.

  • Do legends and fairy tales count here? Commented Feb 18, 2022 at 15:14
  • Yes, dozens, maybe hundreds. Are you after anything specific?

  • @Mauricio Yes, legends or fairy tales count. Is there a name of a specific legend/tale you could provide? Commented Feb 19, 2022 at 5:20

    Something like this would work: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Elves_and_the_Shoemaker ? Commented Feb 19, 2022 at 21:01
