My Approach to Helping
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.
One of my clients have this to say about my sessions:
\\\"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." - K, 32 year old woman, the Klang Valley.
