Jennifer McDonald
Registered Therapeutic Counsellor


Let me pour you a cup of tea or coffee while we sit and talk. Therapy doesn’t have to be scary, daunting or uncomfortable. I’m here to support you in finding solutions to your pain & conflict and make the changes you want to make in your life, while finding peace & calm in the process. Life is far too short to have past traumas, prolonged grief, loss, relationships conflicts, anxiety, self doubt, regret or loneliness take over.

If you have lost someone or something very dear to you and are struggling with the painful and lonely emotions and feelings that often accompany grief, bereavement and loss, please reach out. There is no timeline when experiencing grief and each of our journeys through it can look different, which sometimes makes it feel confusing and overwhelming.  

Relationships with our parents, family, friends & partners don’t have to be unfulfilling, full of conflict or leave us doubting ourselves and feeling unappreciated for who we are. We aren’t meant to surrender to unfulfilling, controlling or bad relationships, or to live a life where you are walking on eggshells all the time. If you are experiencing a distance in your relationship or not sure how to move towards relationships that are more fulfilling, please reach out as support and guidance is here. 

If you choose to work with me, I invite life, comfort, warmth & realness to our sessions, so you won’t find a cold, sterile and uncomfortable office space here. We will navigate your experiences together & work towards understanding how it got to this point and what you can to do to get you to a life of peace, calm and happiness.

I currently have availability and offer in person & online sessions during the day, evening and on some weekends and I have 24/7 online scheduling, so you can find a session time that works best for you. I also offer a free 20 minute consultation meet and greet call to answer any questions you may have regarding counselling with me. To avoid playing email or phone tag & waiting for a response, please visit my website at to book your free meet and greet call or to learn more about Nurture Me Counselling.
