Profile for Kirsten Jackson, BDA Registered Dietitian

Kirsten Jackson a specialist dietitian and founder of The Food Treatment Clinic which specialises in digestive health and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.

Kirsten first became interested in the interaction and management of medical conditions through diet when trying to control her own gut health and PCOS symptoms.

After qualifying as a registered dietitian, Kirsten specialised in these two areas she was most passionate about and worked within both private and NHS hospitals across the UK.

Kirsten decided to open her own practise in 2014 after finding that there was a need to provide a much higher level of support and advice to individuals in order to help them manage their own conditions successfully.

Since 2014, The Food Treatment Clinic has now grown to provide online services, paediatric specialist dietetics as well as the traditional 1-2-1 clinic practise for adults.

Through her own personal experience and client feedback, Kirsten has managed to build a a unique practise where clients feel 110% supported. This way of working has allowed her to achieve life changing results for clients.
