I'd think it would depend on the type of therapy.

Cognitive behavior therapists might deem anyone who isn't ready and willing to change unsuitable for therapy.

Psychoanalysts might deem someone with poor ego strength unsuitable for analysis.

I suppose severe cognitive impairment would be an issue for many types of therapy. But behavior therapists might not see it as an overwhelming problem.

Some therapists might consider someone in the depths of depression to the point that they were unable to care for themselves or someone in severe mania unsuitable for anything but the most basic supportive therapy until medications stabilized them somewhat. But other therapists might not agree.
