Guided Health

Bachelor in Health Science (Nutritional Medicine)

Guided Health specialises in clinical nutrition, focusing on the connection between the gut and the brain. The practitioner uses nutritional medicine (food, diet and supplements) to assist clients with digestive complaints and mood related disorders such as stress, anxiety, depression and sleep disturbances.

Continue reading...

The connection:

The gastrointestinal system (your digestive system) has its own nervous system.  In fact, it has been termed the ‘second brain’. This system, known as the enteric nervous system, while it can  act independently of the nervous system, it also works in synergism (together) with our digestive system.

If either of these systems malfunctions, the other can too.

Your practitioner works with you to determine any levels of biochemical imbalances in the body and brain through a full spectrum of nutritional and lifestyle analyses.  The correction of such imbalances through the proper use of nutritional supplementation, diet and lifestyle modifications may help to improve:


  • Mood disorders (stress, anxiety, depression)
  • Sleep quality
  • Inflammation
  • Weight loss
  • Digestive complaints
  • Liver function (support)
  • Food sensitivity

 Matt Glover

Matt is a qualified Master Life Coach, Master NLP Practitioner, and Master Ericksonian Hypnotherapist. He is founder of Happy and Healthy Relationships and creator of it’s 7 step Relationship R.E.B.U.I.L.D. program for couples, and 5 step D.R.E.A.M program for singles.

Happy and Healthy Relationships coaching is a future oriented process based on discovering awareness of why your relationship is where it is, and providing a structured program to enable you to achieve the type of relationship you have always dreamed of having.

Continue reading...

The aim of the program is to give you the tools to continue to create and maintain great relationships once the program has finished. Utilising coaching techniques, neuro linguistic programming, and hypnotherapy, relationship coaching is a highly efficient and effective method of achieving your relationship goals, as well as discovering aspects of yourself that will be of benefit in all areas of your life. The sessions are conducted in a confidential and supportive environment, where the emphasis is on a helping you move forward rather than laying blame and staying stuck in the past.

The Program is ideal if you are:

  • A couple who feel that the love has gone from your relationship but want to stay together
  • A couple who have a good relationship but want to find that extra spark to take it to the next level
  • A couple who have given up hope of your relationship surviving and are ready to call it quits
  • A couple who still love each other, but conflict in your lives is driving you apart
  • A couple whose relationship has been shattered by infidelity
  • Dissatisfied with your relationship and feel you need help, but your partner is unwilling to do anything about it
  • In a relationship that you feel needs work, and want to learn how to create a truly satisfying and fulfilling relationship
  • Dealing with the end of a relationship and wanting to move on and not make the same mistakes again
  • Beginning a relationship and want to learn strategies to ensure that your love continues to blossom
  • Looking for love and wanting to understand why your efforts are proving unsuccessful

The demise of his 14 year marriage, and the subsequent devastation and confusion as a result, was the inspiration for Matt to discover what makes a successful relationship, and why so many marriages fail. Extensive research, training, and soul searching led Matt to a deep understanding of what makes relationships work, and how with the proper guidance almost every relationship can not only be revived, but can flourish into something better than ever before. Today Matt is a relationship expert who has developed proven strategies that will show you that you can revitalise your relationship, or create an amazing new one, and will assist you to find the love that you crave with his fully guaranteed R.E.B.U.I.L.D. and D.R.E.A.M programs. He also runs The Melbourne Divorce Support meetup group to provide a forum for people trying to deal with the devastation of a broken relationship, as well as Happy and Healthy Relationships meetup group to assist people to create magical relationships.
