The Therapy Room
Mobile 0434 375 147
At the Therapy Room, Tanya wants you to feel safe, relaxed, and comfortable. It is a welcoming and private space created in Adelaide’s CBD that allows patients, especially our patients of tender years to share their story in confidence and get the help they need. Dr Tanya Robinson is a specialised Mental Health Social Work Practitioner registered with AASW, Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, and a specialist in child psychology.
Dr Tanya Robinson’s framework of understanding is Psychoanalytic. Psychoanalysis focuses on gaining insight into your mental health and relationships through uncovering subconscious content and through experiencing how your internal and interpersonal issues resurface in the patient-therapist transference relationship. Dr Tanya Robinson’s understanding of the human psyche has been influenced by the work of traditional and other more contemporary Psychoanalysts and specialist psychologists and social workers.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy (insight-orientated therapy) is the interpretation of mental and emotional processes, and aims to address the foundation and formation of emotional processes. It allows people to gain insight into their lives and present-day problems. They also evaluate patterns developed over time. Life factors are reviewed with a person in therapy, exploring emotions, thoughts, early-life experiences, and beliefs. Recognising recurring patterns can help people see how they avoid distress or develop defence mechanisms to cope. This insight may allow them to begin changing those patterns. The therapeutic relationship is central to psychodynamic psychotherapy.
At The Therapy Room, we prioritise the safety of our clients. When working with vulnerable population groups and tender-aged children, safety must at all times be prioritised and risk reduction strategies are promoted. We adhere to government safety checks and to professional guidelines governing safe practice protocols. The Therapy Room implements the Family Violence Multi-Agency Risk Assessment and Management Framework (MARAM).
Tanya loves the helping profession as much as she loves academia. She has an immense passion for criminal justice and has often brought what remains unspoken to the foreground. She is passionate about empowering the voiceless and giving voice to the “invisible person” through bringing knowledge and education to her audiences. This message is relayed in one of her books “The Silenced Child – Secrets & Lies”. She is a true ambassador for education and strengthening resilience in the face of adversity. Over the past two decades, as an Extraordinary Professor and Honorary Research Fellow, Tanya has added significant value in her field of specialisation of forensic investigation and social and criminal science. Tanya moved to Australia in 2019 after living in Africa since childhood.
