Couple/Relationship Counselling

"Donna Mahoney at Innate Therapies worked with my 6 year old son to overcome anxiety and behaviour issues through Clayfield/Art Therapy sessions. 

When we moved to Cairns from Western Australia my son had issues with boundaries, severe anxiety, aggression and low esteem. His anxiety was so bad that during kindy he couldn’t participate in the Easter hat parade because of the large crowd and fear of looking silly. Most days he didn’t want to go kindy and struggled to make close friends.

Since he started Clayfield Therapy with Donna, his self esteem has increased and his anxiety is much better. He even did the Easter Hat parade this year and danced on stage in front of the whole school! He has made good friends and loves going to school every day. We still have work to do however the difference that I see Clayfield making is incredible. My son was recently having a challenging time at school and actually asked to go and do some more Clayfield with Donna. He knew that it would help him and it did. He was Student of the Week twice and received an award for his “safe behaviour” in the playground which is a huge milestone in such a short time for him. 

Thank you Donna. Thank goodness we moved to Cairns and have your support." Name withheld
