Gia G. Kon
Managing Director & Registered and Licensed Counsellor
I am a highly-trained and professionally-licensed mental health therapist committed to delivering the best care to my clients. I am also openly queer and work closely with the LGBTQIA+ community in Malaysia whereby I offer queer counselling on issues such as coming out, gender dysphoria, relationships, gender identity and sexual orientation. I also offer sexuality education. Outside of my work, I am currently pursuing a doctorate in psychology with a focus on gender and sexuality studies.
I am also trained to treat a variety of mental health conditions, such as depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, schizophrenia, etc. I am also equipped to deal with issues such as body image problems, eating disorders, childhood trauma, stress, anger management issues and more.
Mental health is my passion and calling. I conduct sessions based on a process that is collaborative, compassionate and respectful. I also offer a space that is kind, versatile and genuine.
I understand that life can affect our mental health and mental wellness. After all, we all face challenges from time to time. Throughout my multiple sessions with you, I will help you uncover your inner strength and resources to overcome life’s adversities.
One does not have to have problems with mental health to see a therapist. Life’s stressors, such as setbacks and transitions, can already be hard to deal with and I am always ready to help. My aim is to help you enjoy a high quality of life.
I treat all of my clients as my equals and I offer them the chance to express themselves in a comfortable way and in a positive space. Together, we will help you take care and improve your mental health and wellness.
I cannot promise you sunny skies, but I can promise to walk with you together as you go through life’s obstacles. You are never alone, and together we will help you reach health and happiness that you rightly deserve.

Gia is very easy to open up to
Gia has been very supportive, 11/10
I feel I have experienced a lot of growth
Gia has been exceptionally patient, calm, compassionate
It’s my first experience going to a therapist which my friend has been going to, & TIL feels like a safe zone where you could not only share your concern, but to find ways to deal with the challenges you’ve been facing with the advice given by the professionals. Ms Gia has been exceptionally patient, calm, compassionate, & looking forward for more sessions ahead to discover myself & areas to improve or enhance to have a healthy & better lifestyle!
Gia really made things different and really practiced & provide what she wrote in her bio
The customer service and appointment management are very efficient and clear. They always inform in advanced. They take good care of their clients in terms of following the Covid guidelines.
Gia’s a really good therapist. She really made things different and really practiced & provide what she wrote in her bio.
In addition, I love that they have sliding scales to make it affordable. Nonetheless, centre’s clean and comfortable and a therapy centre I would recommend.
Thanks Gia for being so patient, professional and for providing me a safe space to talk
I have been attending weekly sessions for a few months. I am coping better now and learned so much about myself from these sessions. The atmosphere setting is so comfortable and soothing, thanks Ms Gia for being so patient, professional and for providing me a safe space to talk about difficult topics. I’d highly recommend seeking therapy for self improvement and better mental health.
I have grown so much with her
I have seen Gia since her practicum back in 2016 until today. I was a student back then and now I am working. I have grown so much with her and saw her flourish in her journey as well. I am recommending Gia as your therapist. Thanks Gia ! See you soon.
The good service. Gia is understanding and that makes me feel quite comfortable sharing the space with her. Besides that, she is very helpful when I need to reschedule some sessions.
I feel so seen and heard and valued
Everything has been amazing. Gia has been really amazing, supportive, and has scaffolded the models/ techniques/ framework to me. I feel so seen and heard and valued in my sessions. I feel like I met my goals of understanding and unpacking my patterns of burnout and the consequences of burnout.
Gia is very open and a good listener.
My therapy sessions have been effective in helping me process my thought process. My therapist, Gia is very open and a good listener. With the changes that I went through this MCO, the therapy sessions were definitely a great support especially for my mental health.
I felt at ease and safe to talk to her about everything.
Gia has been so wonderful over the short time that she has been my therapist. From the very first session she was able to understand my goals and what I wanted to achieve. I felt at ease and safe to talk to her about everything. Most importantly, she stresses on how much she wants you to improve by going through exercises and homework that will provide tangible results. I definitely recommend and will come back in the future!
I found a safe space to just talk about anything and just be myself
I met Gia while they’re doing their internship. I was in a very bad mental state, and I needed an affordable service. This was about 3 years and a half ago. I’m glad I finally found someone to help me out. Mental health is still a taboo in Malaysia, as well as being queer. I found a safe space to just talk about anything and just be myself without judgement.
As I was healing, a lot of issues especially childhood and relationships were being addressed. I was also in between jobs. Meeting my therapist has helped me plan out my life. I’m doing much better in terms of my mental health, relationships and career. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and they are also helping me get second opinion to see how I can improve my quality of life.
I really appreciate the kind thoughts and care from them as I go through my journey. Looking forward to my next session with them. Thank you so much.
Gia goes the extra length to get to know her clients
I started seeing Gia for my therapy sessions in 2019 and as a person who had been seeing other professionals before that, I cannot recommend anyone better than Gia. Gia has helped me to deal with my depression, anxiety and life problems better and by the time each session ends, I feel more energised, have more clarity about my situation and feel as though a huge rock has been lifted off my shoulders. Gia goes the extra length to get to know her clients on a deep level and help them navigate life’s challenges and I am thankful that she is able to help me in my life journey.
