"In the short time we have worked together, I feel like a new actress, less afraid of being perfect, staying in “the moment” with Ashlie’s gentle guidance. She has a way of saying the right thing when needed and staying out of the way when needed." - Lucy Wilshire, 

Ashlie holds a space for her students to really learn about themselves (and their craft). She has done the work, both as a human and as a teacher, to develop her instinct and intuition to work whole heartedly. It is a great gift to those that study with her that she does this with the lightest of touch, guiding each individual forward with care, kindness and generosity. But this sensitivity to nurture is not to suggest she is not precise and rigorous, or that she won’t push you to your limit if she sees that some tough love is what you need. And this is her greatest tool, her empathy and compassion, with it she releases the talent of all those she works with at whatever pace they are capable of. Put your trust in Ashlie and you’ll be rewarded. Ben Lambert


I feel stronger and more energetic about both life and career - I found my purpose again and the ENERGY! I’m meditating every morning before work...and I have to say...I get triggered way less easily and it’s amazing!!! As if I were above it...I’m in a particular situation at the moment that would easily put me in my head and would freak me out, because it scares me!!! But the tools you taught me are totally useful, I’m grounded and feeling super creative! A thing that hadn’t happened in a very long time. Martini Lodi


Ashlie is sharing wonderful and useful tools and techniques to inspire, uplift and kick you into action and being. To awaken you to take responsibility for and to enjoy your life, purpose and career fully. Agnes Cecilia

I learnt the amazing ability to drop into my purpose, speak from the heart, to clear the programming and to reset my mindset. Joy, love, opportunity and aims in my heart following coaching with Ashlie, what a teacher and a guide, always for others and fear is an afterthought. - A.C 


Ashlie showed me you don’t have to be driven by an unconscious fear- you can be in control of your actions!! - T.V 

I learnt to intercept my negative thought pattern and realise what the underlying belief was that I had. Once those were confronted, I felt a weight lifted. My experience of the workshop afterwards was that I want to share it with everyone I come across. I think it benefits anyone and everyone. I do feel like if my anxiety pops up again I am able to stop the thought, break the pattern and trust in my abilities as well as the situation. I feel everyone can benefit from it. Cecile Sinclair 


It really has created a monumental positive shift in my mindset.- I'm feeling focused and confident about what i want- it was just an amazing, life and mind shifting 3 days A.L 

From our very first session she has always made me feel 100% comfortable in my own skin and ironed out any doubts that I my have had in my head. Through my work with her I have been able to grow confidently and work towards certain goals... She really is great!" - Lee Juggurnauth, Presenter

“The workshop woke me up and got me into creative flow. I was pushed out of my comfort zone. I would give it 9/10. My only complaint is that I wish it went on longer!” - Daniel Imbert

"She has the ability to guide us to ‘the unexpected’, challenging us to unlock our potential, while giving us the confidence and support to take the leap. Her understanding of human behaviour is exceptional. I feel so privileged to be taught by her" - Fernanda Lippi 

"Ashlie Walker’s ability to traverse the pedagogical tightrope of teacher, coach and mentor is a style to behold. Not only will she guide you in a way that will unlock the doors with which to approach the craft of acting in a truthful manner; She will show you a way to make that craft your own. " - Alex Coop

As an actor, working with Ashlie Walker is one of the best things that ever happened to me. Her knowledge and internalisation of Meisner Technique is truly remarkable. I am thankful to work with her! If at any point you are struggling, no matter how hard you struggle in your work, she cares and she finds the right words to get to you, so you continue and improve and make progress. And most important she never gives up on you, as long as you don’t give up on yourself."  Maximilian Bosher

“I am marvelled by this practice of learning how to really listen and see a fellow human being. This has made me much more aware of my own insecurities, defences, longing to connect, to be seen and heard and also my ability to really connect! Ashlie as a teacher is just in another league!” - Jenine Edward Workshop Student @ Actors Academy


“It was safe, even therapeutic to work with Ashlie, and I feel that I was able to extend both my emotional scale as well as let go of learnt patterns limiting it.” - Iris Olsson


It was transformational. In the end it all made me learn heaps about not only acting but myself as well. It’s come up in most acting related situations that “why go to therapy when you can go to acting class”, but Ashlie’s course took it to a new level. Hands down, I would give the workshop a 10/10. - Timo Utterström - Actor, Workshop Student @ Actors Academy

The Meisner experience with Ashlie was eye-opening for me not only from an actors point of view, but also from a human being’s point of view. Ashlie's brilliant way to teach and how she guides away from controlling the scene is something to experience.- Jani Airiainen Workshop Student @ Actors Academy


Ashlie is skilled professional. She gave individual attention, presence. The environment was safe. The course gave me a strong and different understanding of acting - and definitely a more appealing way of acting. I grew as a person and as an actor.  - Slava Dugin Workshop Student @ Actors Academy


I’ve never acted before so for me this was not only an acting class, but also deeper journey into myself. The reflection of your partner together with Ashlie’s help is very powerful and eye-opening.Everyone should try this workshop and you will understand what I mean. - Janna Salokangas Workshop Student @ Actors Academy


Ashlie's workshop just induces those kinds of feelings that you start to believe you can accomplish anything you desire. Which, I gotta admit, is not easy for a person like me with a fair share of self-esteem issues in the past. Her frank and pure demeanour and willingness to show all the insecure feelings herself, too, is a strong catalyst for extraordinarily fast mental growth.... If you are a human being, please take that course. Give yourself a better life. - Kaisla Puura Workshop Student @ Actors Academy Finland


Ashlie's teaching ignited my passion for the craft of acting. She approaches teaching with an inspiring level of dedication, patience and compassion which she then, inevitably, instills in her students. - Fola Evans-Akingbola, Actress


Ashlie’s uniqueness above others is in her highly sensitive intuitive awareness and emotional accuracy and understanding. Her way to direct is gentle, yet never lets you off the hook to underachieve your best potential at hand. The best features in a coach an actor and human being could ask for. - Nita Arpiainen Advanced Student @ Actors Temple/ Founder of Actors Academy Finland

She made me feel safe 100%. It’s the only way to learn with the guidance of a teacher who has acquired a deep understanding of the technique.​ - Gill Broderick Advanced Student @ Actors Temple

Ashlie's intuitive nature, warmth and forthright guidance helped me develop as an actor, and the lessons I learnt under her tutelage remain with me in my daily work. - Mairead Reynolds Advanced Student @ Actors Temple
