Profile for Mrs Kirsten Jackson

Kirsten Jackson BSc Hons PGCert is a UK registered consultant dietitian specialising in irritable bowel syndrome.

Kirsten graduated from The University of Hertfordshire in 2012 before starting her career in the UK’s National Health Service. During this time, Kirsten was diagnosed with coeliac disease and naturally became passionate for gastroenterology. She recognised that there was a huge gap when it came to the care and treatment of those suffering with irritable bowel syndrome and so opened her own private clinic, The Food Treatment Clinic, to address this in 2014.

The Food Treatment Clinic has since evolved and now is now an online MDT service providing both 121 and group support for those with IBS. Services include dietetics, cognitive behavioural therapy and clinic hypnotherapy.

In 2018, Kirsten completed her Post-Graduate Diploma in Advanced Dietetics from The University of Nottingham. And in the same year, she moved to the United Arab Emirates as the lead dietitian for Kings College Hospital in Dubai. In this role she was part of the team which developed and opened the first British healthcare facility in the Middle East.

In 2020, Kirsten left her role at Kings College after the birth of her child in order to achieve more of a work life balance (what she is always advising others on!) She was also able to develop her own private practise further.

Outside of clinical work, Kirsten is an official media spokesperson for The British Dietetic Association and an expert advisor to The IBS Network.
