About your therapist
Vanessa Gregory enjoyed a rural childhood in a charming village in southern England. Her ambition to become a vet was discouraged as she was a girl. She became a dairy scientist, studying at the University College of Wales. While food science was yet to emerge as a discipline and the gut biome was unheard of, except in cattle, she studied the fields of microbiology and biochemistry with passion.

Immigration to Australia opened new horizons and following a family breakdown she studied social science at the University of Queensland and Charles Sturt University, New South Wales to become a social planner. Studies in hypnosis and Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) followed. While she spent ten years as Community Development Officer with the Logan City Council and twenty-one years as a health planner then manager in Queensland Health, Vanessa was drawn to case work with individual clients and is now able to use her skill sets in food science, hypnosis and NLP.
