Melbourne’s Most Trusted Clinical Hypnotherapist, Renay Gramberg, and her firm, R.G. Hypnotherapy, are helping people to find courage, clarity, and control and move into the life they envision


“R.G. Hypnotherapy was born to provide people with a treatment solution that is safe, fast, and effective.”

When you think about hypnosis, what do you visualize? For many, it’s a comedy act or a magician who swings a clock that compels an unwilling volunteer to make dramatic on-stage confessions. But there is a fairly solid scientific foundation for hypnosis. Clinical studies have demonstrated that it can support weight loss, sleep, quitting smoking, and other healthy behaviors. When carried out by qualified professionals, hypnotherapy is regarded as a safe practice and is increasingly popular as a physical and mental health treatment. Hypnotherapy can be used alone as a treatment, but it also integrates well with other types of therapy. Therefore, hypnosis can be used in a clinical hypnotherapist’s arsenal of clinical therapies to assist clients with problems that have proven to be intractable in the past.

Renay Gramberg is one such master clinical hypnotherapist and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner, works with clients through her practice, R. G. Hypnotherapy, to help them live the calm, joyful lives they desire. R.G. Hypnotherapy offers simple and effective solutions in the treatment of a range of emotional and psychological issues.

Renay Gramberg, Owner of R.G. Hypnotherapy, spoke exclusively to The Silicon Review about how she and her company are addressing clients’ mental health at a subconscious level.

Interview Highlights

Q. Why was R.G. Hypnotherapy born? What pain points did you set out to solve?

Typically, counseling, psychology, and other talk methods of therapy have been the standard go-to in situations where people are struggling with issues in their lives. However, key trends in empowerment, mindfulness, and manifestation, along with groundbreaking studies in neuroplasticity and the realization of the power of the human mind, have allowed people to imagine that greater things are possible for themselves, and they want to be able to use the full potential of their minds and find an easier way of overcoming issues or getting that greater edge in business or competition.

Further to this, many people avoid therapy all together because they don’t want to keep talking or revisiting painful issues, or they just find it too hard.

R.G. Hypnotherapy was born to provide people with a treatment solution that is safe, fast, and effective. Hypnotherapy bypasses the conscious mind to change the programming directly within the subconscious mind, which in turn changes thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and physical reactions, giving people the easier option they are looking for.

Q. What is the primary focus of R.G. Hypnotherapy? Is it hypnosis sessions with clients, or are you teaching, writing, or creating other types of material or products?

R.G. Hypnotherapy’s focus is cutting-edge hypnosis sessions for clients 1:1, helping them overcome issues and get ahead in today’s world, backed up with unique, specially recorded hypnosis tracks. R.G. Hypnotherapy also offers services in corporate training with the team cohesion solution packages with team workshops and 1:1 therapy sessions, which aim to bring team unity, enhanced performance, and staff retention to forward thinking businesses around the globe.

Q. How long have you been a hypnotherapist? What kind of training do you have for hypnotherapy?

I have been a clinical hypnotherapist since 2018. I am fortunate to have had access to the best hypnotherapy education that exists in the world. Studying under the esteemed Rhondda Stewart at the Australian College of Hypnotherapy (now Clover Institute), I first completed a double diploma in hypnotherapy and neuro-linguistic programming and then the advanced diploma in hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, and NLP. All up, it was an amazing 3.5 years of education, which is the highest level available anywhere in the world.

Q. What different hypnotherapy methods do you use to treat your clients?

I work with a large variety of hypnotherapeutic methods or techniques, utilizing the best tool for the client at the time. Some clients respond well to metaphors and indirect suggestions, while others get more from direct suggestions.

Hypnotherapy is fluid and flexible, and there is often no right or wrong way to help a person make desired changes. It really is about what the client will respond to.

Combining hypnosis with NLP techniques ensures that optimal language is used to ensure change, regardless of the hypnotherapeutic techniques used.

Q. How do you ensure the hypnotherapy is tailored to each and every client’s specific needs?

I work with a variety of tools and techniques from various modalities, such as hypnotherapy, NLP, psychotherapy, EFT, and EMDR, to help people achieve what they want in life. I help them get past outdated and limiting thoughts, emotions, and behaviors to turn their vision into their reality, whatever that may be. This can be to give up smoking, build confidence, progress in their career or even improve their personal relationships.

I believe that a holistic approach to mental health is vital, so I get to know clients in a deep and meaningful way during their first appointment, learning about their lives, their experiences, and their dreams. When creating a treatment plan for a client, I consider their whole lives—their nutrition, activity, sleep, and home life—to give each client an individualized plan. During each session, clients are empowered to take the steps they need and develop a deep inner confidence in their own abilities and resources.

Q. How much are your hypnotherapy services priced at? Are your services covered by insurance?

My services range from $180 AUD for a single session up to around $3000 for all-inclusive packages for 1:1 hypnotherapy services.

Bespoke corporate packages are tailored to each business and take into account the number of staff and the issue the workplace is dealing with.

In Australia, some private health funds cover hypnotherapy sessions, depending on the individual’s policy.

Q. Can you provide us with one or two success stories describing the challenges your clients faced and how R.G. Hypnotherapy helped them overcome those challenges?

In 2021, Ideal Care disability support workers were struggling with team cohesion and communication, being limited to inadequate space, or adjusting to the pressures of working from home during the pandemic. Ideal Care’s management saw their team struggle and wanted to give them the opportunity to grow and develop through trying times, so they enlisted the help of R.G. Hypnotherapy, offering each staff member hypnosis sessions as part of their development package.

As each individual staff member found motivation, improved communication, and resilience, the team was able to begin functioning as a far more effective team.
