Ailsa Robson – Walk & Talk Therapist

Psychotherapist and Author

Is this you?

Are you a capable and intelligent person who wished they had ‘better’ relationships, maybe a ‘better’ body and certainly a ‘better’ life but you’re savvy enough to know there is no such thing as perfection?

  • Do you wish to learn to respond rather than react, to triggering moments?
  • Do you realise that you are not the problem, instead you may be just having a problem?
  • Would you like to feel more in charge and create positive change into your life?
  • Would you like to be heard without judgement?

You are not alone x

I’m Ailsa, an empathic listener with a good sense of humour, and a compassionate therapeutic approach.

I invite you to explore your story with me.

Ailsa bares all in her raw journal entries written whilst raising her babies, often alone, due to her husband’s Fly In and Fly Out (FIFO) work commitments. She reflects on the golden and gut-wrenching moments of mothering and life, whilst contemplating how she feels about her ever-changing body.

If you hate dieting and yearn to like yourself more, feel stuck in your own unrealistic expectations, and spend more time caring for others than yourself; you are not alone.

Ailsa offers an alternative to striving to be the best version of yourself ‒ instead embrace your dodgy bits and give thanks.

Ailsa Robson is a person who believes that:

Life is perfectly imperfect | Everyone’s story counts | There is always hope.

Ailsa is also a psychotherapist who provides Walk and Talk Therapy to her clients, and the author of personal memoir ‘Perfectly Imperfect’.

Ailsa has noticed that sharing her raw self reflections in her book she has encouraged others to explore their own stories of imperfection. Even though Ailsa has a broad professional and personal knowledge base, her work always focuses on her client’s self-knowledge, and their ability to explore their own story whilst creating positive change in their lives.

Ailsa’s genuinely compassionate nature helps create easy connections with people, and she loves working with those who share her interest in accepting themselves flaws and all.

Witness Ailsa's Story through Perfectly Imperfect

I feel like I’ve made a new friend through reading this book.


This book is a breath of fresh air as it is raw and REAL.


Through sharing her innermost thoughts, pain and internal conflict, Ailsa will unsettle you and challenge you at times. And she will offer valuable insights, which no doubt will play a part in the reader’s own transformation.
