Cancer Care - Psychotherapy
Jennifer Turner is a registered Psychotherapist with an M.A. in Counselling Psychology and a focus on integrative care and respectful individual and group work to support the challenges of illness, the hope of healing, uncertainty, end of life needs, and grief work. She has specialized certification in health and
lifestyle coaching, cancer coaching and navigation, mindfulness, and supporting the challenges of living with cancer, and dealing with dying. She is also an experienced pastoral care provider, and is very privileged to be able to walk with individuals and their loved ones at the most challenging of times.
Integrative cancer counselling respects the interaction between mind, body and spirit and is care of the entire human being - it is about more than physical survivorship. Counselling uses each patient’s experiences and definitions of health and well-being as a starting point to enhance well-being by providing hope, information and support, as well as practical skills to navigate their cancer experience. Jennifer supports people to understand their options, make informed decisions, find how how to best work with their health care system.
As a cancer patient herself, she has learned how our culture often fails to support the space and opportunity to consider the full continuum of life and death - with all the sacred meaning, joy and grief that this often entails. Jennifer is committed to supporting individuals through this experience and to provide opportunities for people to talk freely of their needs, fears and hopes and explore the healing and growth available to them - reducing fear and feelings of isolation.
