If you're talking about asking a person to whom you believe already has become unhealthily attached then I would say yes, it's important to bring that *tactfully* to their attention. Failure to bring it to their attention can be detrimental to their success in therapy because they will desire to maintain their failures in order to keep the relationship going.
Excellent answer and well thought out as usual
Much better than my feeble attempt to help out
Don't expect anyone to help you, if you won't help yourself!
