Paula Jones

Nutritional Therapy Practitioner

Welcome to my relevant story so far.......

My working career began as a professional dancer, dance teacher and later a Pilates instructor. In my early twenties I experienced a sudden unexpected decline in health, experiencing persistent chronic symptoms including systemic muscular pain, swollen glands, and debilitating arthritis of no obvious cause. After years of hospital visits and relentless tests I was eventually, and to my surprise, diagnosed with M.E. aged 27.

In seeking to manage my own health, I developed an interest in nutrition and grew curious of its ability to impact on health and wellbeing. My interest developed further in later years when I became pregnant and eventually became the proud mum of a bouncing baby boy.

My motivation to learn and use the knowledge I had gained through pure interest grew and led to my studying at the prestigious UK College of Nutrition and Health (BCNH), where I graduated with distinction. Since qualification I am proud to have developed NutriChoice, my nutritional therapy consultation company. In addition, I was a proud member of the BCNH clinical tutor team, supporting the learning of BSc honours students in clinical practice. This then advanced to my role as Clinic Director at Good Health Nutrition (GHN), the specialist nutritional therapy teaching clinic in association with BCNH.

Strongly committed to continuing my professional development, I regularly attend lectures and seminars, keeping up to date with the latest research. I'm a registered member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and am a member of the NHS Directory of Complementary and Alternative Practitioners. I thoroughly enjoy working with both adults and children. My personal experience has given insight into life changing health problems and coping with long term chronic ill health. I believe strongly that developing an understanding of health and nutrition can enable people to make informed choices, maximising their health and enabling them to feel back in the driving seat of their own wellbeing.

Eat, drink and be healthy!
