Deb Archibald - The Maris Practice

Deb Archibald

Deb Archibald (MSc) offers personalised Nutrition and Health Coaching

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease symptoms or infirmity.” World Health Organisation (WHO).

Deb is a qualified Nutritional Therapist, and Motivational Health & Performance Coach. She has a passion for helping people restore optimal health and energy, build healthy lifestyle habits, and settle their minds, in the context of our increasingly busy and stressful lives.

Clients often come to her feeling stressed, exhausted, and generally under-par, but can’t get to the bottom of what may be causing their symptoms. Or they may be facing chronic ill-health challenges and realise they need to take action.

Restoring balance in the function of the body, mind, and lifestyle of her clients is at the heart of her approach, using a combination of nutrition programmes based on sound scientific evidence, and motivational coaching support. She follows the Functional Medicine approach to health, which views the body as an interconnected whole, and aims to uncover the underlying factors that drive an individual’s health issues. Each of us is unique, and understanding each individual’s genetic predispositions, environmental exposures and health and illness experience is key to developing bespoke plans that get positive results.

She has a Master’s degree in Personalised Nutrition from Middlesex University, and a Nutritional Therapy Practice Diploma from the Centre for Nutrition Education, as well as being an accredited coach and NLP practitioner. She is fascinated by the complexity of the human body and, always keen to keep building her knowledge, is currently undertaking further study with the Institute of Functional Medicine, as well as teaching on Middlesex University’s BSc Nutrition Science degree course.

Before changing careers, Deb worked as a freelance business consultant and coach in the City. Long hours, unpredictable commutes, and a host of unhealthy eating and lifestyle habits left her overweight, burnt out and with a breast cancer diagnosis, and nutrition helped turn her life around.

She is a member of the British Association for Nutritional Therapists and is registered with the UK regulatory body the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council.
