Anna Collins Nutrition


When you work with me, you are nurtured. 

We work together in one of 3 ways: 
Personalised nutrition and lifestyle change to help you bulletproof your health
Delivering corporate wellness programmes to make your workplace work for you
Learning and implementing change through my online courses

As a child and then again in my 30’s I was ill (and very ill!) and saw at first hand how food and lifestyle tweaks can change lives. Sharing your journey to better health and happiness is my passion.

I consult in person in Woodtown, Rathfarnham (Dublin 16) and on Zoom.


Achieve your goals through
tailored nutrition & lifestyle

I give you the knowledge to help you on your health journey.  Knowledge is power but structure and support are just as important.  With me, you get all three. 


About Anna


Anna has been practising as a Nutritional Therapist since 2006, with her main focus being digestive and immune issues.

Nutrition Consultant

Your health is not just about food.  Your life events, stress levels, exercise, mindset and sleep habits all count.  I help clients to build resilience to stress, get a better night’s sleep and how to turn around negative thoughts, beliefs or conditioning that’s holding you back from 100% health.


I specialise in digestive and gut issues.  I give you the knowledge and support you need on your journey to better health.

Knowledge is power but structure and support are just as important. 

Work with me, you get all three.   

Workplace Wellness

Is your team struggling? Persistent fatigue, a chronic health issue, hidden stress overwhelm all impact massively on how well you feel and function in work and life.  My flexible workplace wellness programmes give your people a highly-engaging reset.  It could be a game-changer for organisations and lives.

“From my experience as a patient consulting Anna I found her to be very very knowledgeable and professional, understanding, helpful, efficient and practical.  Altogether a wonderful nutritional therapist.”

Aideen, Dublin 18.

“I went to see Anna because my skin was breaking out and I couldn’t figure out why. Anna explained to me why this was happening and how to improve it. Anna shared her vast knowledge about how the gut processes food and showed me some easily achievable ways to change my diet that has had great results. From each of my 3 sessions with Anna I got guidelines and information documents that Anna did specifically for me. These have been immensely helpful and so were the sessions.”

Peter, Dublin 12

“Having been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis over 10 years ago (and being told by conventional doctors that diet had no relationship to the condition!) I met Anna and it has literally changed my life. Anna’s depth of knowledge on both digestive diseases and how food interacts with this is incredible. Not only does she advise on which foods & supplements she recommends but explains why and then backs this up with detailed plans provided after the consultation so I don’t forget. I’m now much more aware of what I’m eating and how it helps my body work. I’m healthier, happier and now medication-free for the first time in over 10 years. Thank you Anna.”

Paul, Co. Louth. 

“Anna is your ultimate health ally!  She’s with you through thick and thin, all the way to your recovery. Anna is so passionate about what she does, it’s contagious. I had a thyroid issue and was fatigued which thankfully is history now. I am so appreciative of Anna’s skills – she is wonderful, a life saver!”

Delicious & Healthy Recipes for a Healthier Life

Salmon curry with mustard seeds

Salmon curry with mustard seeds

This salmon cooked in sauce is DELICIOUS.  If you want make the cook-in sauce in advance to save faff if you’re having people around.  The original recipe by Madhur Jaffrey involves marinating the salmon but I skip that and it still turns out fab.  I love this served...

Frequently Asked Questions

What to Expect


Once you make your appointment you’ll get a health questionnaire with lifestyle diary to fill in and email back to me minimum 3 working days before your visit. Completing these gives a good idea of your stress levels, workload, digestion, potential nutrient, deficiencies, exercise habits and food preferences. This saves time during the consultation, keeping it affordable, allowing you to get the best value out of your face-time with me.


Taking into account your likes and dislikes, cooking ability, time and financial constraints we will together negotiate a realistic, “do-able” strategy aimed at supporting your body’s own natural healing ability.

Usually this is phased, with the patient judging how much is realistic for them to successfully change over a 3-4 week period. For you to get the most out of our working together it is important that you are up-front about what you feel is realistic for you to do.

At the end of the consultation, you will get written programme and possibly meal or snack ideas, easy-to-do recipes or shopping ideas. You may also get some background information sheets on imbalances that are impacting on your wellbeing.


Depending on your health questionnaire, case history and initial discussion with Anna, certain lab tests may be recommended, though none are obligatory.
Some of these tests might be easily available at hospitals via your GP.

Examples of such hospital tests include ferritin and haemoglobin, dihydrotestosterone (especially useful for assessing causes of male pattern baldness or prostate issues), 25 hydroxy vitamin D, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, T3 and T4, anti TPO antibodies and anti TG antibodies. Only the tests I deem relevant will be recommended to you.

In many instances I do not recommend lab tests.


Some examples of laboratory tests that cannot be found in the Irish medical system include:

• Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis/Parasitology tests
• Iodine deficiency testing
• Testing for chronic Lyme disease
• Hair mineral analysis
• IgG and IgA food sensitivity testing
• Adrenal Stress Index (salivary cortisol and DHEA testing)
• Autoimmune testing. Cutting edge tests from Cyrex can predict (and stave off) autoimmune disease before it develops.
• Selected genetic testing

All tests are through licensed, accredited laboratories. Once the results come in I give you a copy and a detailed explanation from myself.

Labs used include Armin Labs, Biolab, Cyrex, Doctors Data, Genova Diagnostics and Mineral Check.
