For me it was Kerstin’s un-shakability that helped most as I began to trust that I could bring anything I needed to into our sessions. Kerstin always seemed to have faith in me and my abilities, no matter how stuck or uninspired I felt in my work, or what muddle I felt myself and my client to be in. Oftentimes my sense of inadequacy or despair was transformed by the honouring and the deep creativity of the space she provided. Her ability to penetrate gently but firmly through to the core of the matter, along with her presence of love, helped me many times to shift from a place of ego and stuck-ness to a wider, more encompassing soul perspective in my work with clients. The best thing was that I always felt lighter leaving my supervision sessions, more able to be with myself and therefore more able to be with my clients.

Kerstin Lindley-Jones was born and grew up in southern Sweden. After her Baccalaureate, she spent a year training to be a secretary/pa, mainly because the training took her abroad. She spent two months in Brighton and two months in St Gallen, Switzerland.
However, she found that being a secretary was not what she really wanted to be, so she took a degree in Sociology, Pedagogic and Economic history, finishing with an M.A.
After that it was time to go abroad again, and she ended up in England and has never left. After having worked at the Institute of Education in London, she started learning, and very soon, teaching intuitive massage. Finally, she had found something that was truly 'her'! This was also when she met Clive and the two of them taught massage both in London and abroad for some years.
During this time she was also very involved with Humanistic Psychology in its different forms - Gestalt, Bio-Energetics, Encounter etc.
She also trained in healing, having found that her hands seem to 'know' what to do of their own accord. So, a lot of the massage had components of hands-on healing.
The massage work developed into more and more psychological work and she eventually trained in Transpersonal Psychology, finishing in 1988 and gaining her Advanced Diploma in Transpersonal Psychology and membership in the UK Council of Psychotherapy when the Centre for Transpersonal Psychology joined this body in 1997.
During the 1980's she was very involved in her role as a mother and for 7 years was part of a group who started and ran a Rudolf Steiner Kindergarten in Oxford. This was a great learning experience for her and she's very grateful for the insights and knowledge that it gave, much of which is being called upon in her psychotherapy practice.
In the beginning of the 1990's she trained in Huber Astrology and was awarded a Diploma in Astrological Counselling in 1997. The astrological knowledge is adding very helpful insights into the issues that therapy clients may be struggling with, and she finds this tool both invaluable and exciting.
Kerstin is an accredited U.K.C.P. transpersonal psychotherapist and has been trained in supervision - founder member supervision training group, Centre for Transpersonal Psychology, London.
