What Gaynor says about herself

“Although my knowledge of diet and health is wide, I have over the years particularly tended to specialise in women’s health, obesity, IBS, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, heart health and eating disorders. I began specialising in women’s health after taking a short career break to have my two daughters. I worked as a women’s health dietitian for over six years at University College Hospital in London, specialising particularly in PMS, menopause, preconception health, eating disorders and PCOS. I also covered the osteoporosis clinic at this hospital.
Since then, I have worked in various specialist clinics including Hammersmith and Queen Charlotte’s Women’s Health Clinic and the Diabetic clinic at St George’s Hospital, London. I also worked as the dietitian for a private residential eating disorders centre.
I now act as dietary adviser to a well known weight loss organisation and do quite a bit of media work in the dieting and women’s health area.  I also continue to see patients on issues relating to weight and women’s health in the private and NHS setting.
Recently I have studied behaviour change and mindful eating and use the principles it embraces with my groups and with individual clients”
