About Donna Mahoney

Life’s challenges are temporary and so is your situation. Here at Innate Therapies in Cairns QLD, you will discover your natural power to surpass all the trials that come your way and achieve the life that you’ve always desired.

Hello, my name is Donna Mahoney. I am a certified counsellor for children, adolescents and families. I’m here to provide you with the tools and skills to help you regain control of your life. My personal development programs, which I’ve developed for people of all ages, have guided many people in Australia and abroad.

At the moment, I’m working on therapeutic books for children as I’ve found many books in the market couldn’t help them gain insight into their situation. Additionally, I’m a bestselling author of several personal development books for women.

I am often asked how I manage to do the work that I do. The answer is quite simple. My deep-rooted passion for every child’s welfare and their family is my driving force. 

I obtained my counselling skills from formal education, which I consider equally important as my practical experience with my clients, who have helped me massively in gaining different insights. Being protective of children and supportive of families is what constantly motivates me to empower others and repay my community, who has offered me so much.

As a therapist, my goal in life is to take my clients on a personal journey that will transform their lives for the better. And to accomplish this, I don’t settle for what I already know; I continuously hone my skills through different learning avenues.

My healing kit consists of Sand Play Therapy, Play Therapy, Clay Field Therapy, Expressive Therapies, Sensorimotor Art Therapy and Emotional Freedom Technique. I employ a combination of these tools during therapy sessions to help my clients achieve their goals.

I am a hundred percent committed to helping you resolve whatever it is that you’re dealing with at the moment. As I am sympathetic, honest, reliable and cheerful by nature, you will find it so easy to talk to me and open up. 

I may not be able to change your past, but I can change how it affects the rest of your life. With my guidance and tools, I can help you get to the road that leads to a meaningful life.
