Clinical Psychologist & Clinical Family Therapist. Special Focus On Families & Child Development

Dr Tanya Gruenewald is the Founder and Director of Metamind Psychology. She has worked as a Clinical Psychologist for many years in both public health and private practice and has a special focus on families and child development.

She is trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Family Therapy and Narrative and Attachment approaches. 

Tanya has extensive knowledge and experience working with children and families. She has previously worked in a developmental clinic assisting children with attentional difficulties, challenges connected with autism spectrum disorders, and mental health concerns such as depression and anxiety, grief, loss and adjustment. She has worked at the Royal Children’s Hospital since 2013 supporting the mental health of children experiencing chronic pain, illness, injury and physical disabilities. She has worked with children experiencing a range of physical difficulties including Cerebral Palsy, Paediatric stroke, and Acquired Brain Injury. 

Tanya enjoys working with families to create lasting change. She helps a child or young person while also listening to and supporting the parents.
