About Ailsa

Ailsa Robson is a water baby, incessant muser and writer, and someone who always looks for the silver lining. She lives in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia, with her family. She has a private Counselling and Psychotherapy practice and is a passionate Health At Every Size® advocate.

Ailsa’s understanding and empathy for those who need support, has intensified through her experience in the Community Care sector over the last twenty years.

Her love for community, in all its forms, and her belief in the power of belonging and connecting, spurs her to volunteer her time on committees and projects. Ailsa takes pride in her connector roles within SA Woman Australia, a networking community of South Australian Women in Business.

Her natural energy, plus years of public speaking and facilitating groups, have made Ailsa a genuine and charismatic speaker.

Her university degrees are an eclectic mix; and although she is not an anthropologist or librarian at present, she is certainly a professional in the mental health field with a Masters Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Ailsa has created a unique business/lifestyle where she shimmies to the beat of her own tambourine. Her love of collaboration and pushing boundaries has led her to offer Walk and Talk Psychotherapy in the Adelaide Hills in Stirling, and also along the foreshore at Brighton beach.

Ailsa specialises in helping savvy, capable folk who feel stuck in certain aspects of their lives, and provides compassionate, heartfelt, person-centred counselling that is uniquely tailored to her clients.

She can generally be found shaking her butt in less than sharp active-wear, grinning like a Cheshire cat, and building up those around her. When she’s not doing that, you’ll find her blissing out by the ocean… musing again.

Ailsa Robson (MCouns & Psych Th) has a private counselling and psychotherapy practice in Adelaide and sees clients in both Stirling and Brighton, South Australia. She is the author of Perfectly Imperfect.
