I offer one on one therapy sessions

Walk and Talk Therapy,
within my consultation rooms,
or via video calls.

There are times in our lives when we need someone to bear witness to our experiences and listen to our stories, both positive and painful.

I am a counsellor and psychotherapist who genuinely believes that you are the expert in your own life. I take great pride in my compassionate, flexible approach that is uniquely tailored to each of my client’s needs. I work with people who wish to explore their own stories, and in turn make positive change in their lives.

My own work is teaching me to embrace being perfectly imperfect…if this resonates, I invite you to do the same.

Ailsa Robson

Clients come to me to discuss:

  • Grief and Loss
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress management
  • Communication skills
  • Self- esteem and body image

I specialise in Health At Every Size® (HAES®) and incorporate HAES philosophies into my inclusive, respectful counselling that focuses on well-being and self-compassion for my clients. My personal experience and specialist training in these areas assists me to hold space with clients who wish to make peace with their bodies.

I integrate a range of psychotherapy modalities in my sessions including, but not limited to:

  • Narrative Therapy
  • Expressive Therapies
  • Grief Therapy
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Interpersonal Therapy
  • Positive Therapy

Once again, each session is lead by my client’s needs and feedback, and I use a very flexible, heartfelt and comprehensive counselling approach.

I have a Masters Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy – University of Adelaide.

I am a HAES® Australia specialist.

I am also a member of the Assoc for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH).

Two consultation locations; Stirling in the Adelaide Hills, and at Brighton Beach, South Australia.

Sessions by appointment. One on one psychotherapy with Ailsa: $120.00 per hour.


As a counsellor and psychotherapist Ailsa cannot offer clients any medicare or private health rebates or concessions at this stage.

Some clients find that one or two sessions are enough to ‘download and reset’ every 6 months or so, where as other clients prefer regular therapy as a means of tending to their own mental health without the constraints of a care plan. The most important factor in choosing a therapist is that you feel that the person is someone you can trust and connect with. Ailsa welcomes people, who wish to connect with her before they book an initial consult, to call and have a chat.

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.
