About Me

About Me

Hello, I’m Chloe Archard.

 

I’m a nutrition and health coach, author, blogger, teacher and mum. I studied at Oxford University from 1999-2003 and have an MSc in Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry. During my degree I became fascinated in the workings of the human body at a cellular level – how what we eat effects the genes and proteins in our body, how the immune system works and how cancer develops.

 

I’ve always had a passion for nutrition science, I’ve been writing about nutrition and health for several years. I qualified as a Nutritional Therapist in 2017 and as a Health and Life Coach in 2021. I now combine these two modalities to provide my clients with nutrition and health coaching.

 

I currently live near Tunbridge Wells with my husband, 3 beautiful children and a gorgeous whippet called Millie! When I’m not working I love reading, Pilates, cooking, making herbal medicine and going for long foraging walks with my family and my dog.

 

At the core of my work is a simple question: how can we live better, healthier & happier lives? I hope you’ll join me on a quest to discover the answers.

My Scope of Practice

I am a Health Coach and qualified with the Health Coach Institute and am a Member of the UK Health Coaches Association.

Health Coach Scope of Practice

Health Coaches work with individuals and groups in a client-centered process to support their health.

 

We are experts on behaviour change and possess the skills required to create trust and rapport with clients. The coaching process empowers clients to draw on internal strengths, develop self-knowledge, and embrace strategies for making lifestyle changes necessary for optimal health.

 

Health Coaches do not prescribe, diagnose, treat, or interpret results; rather they guide, educate, and support clients.
