People I’ve worked with tend to talk a lot about their changes
Read some of what they say…
Deirdre O’Sullivan, organic farmer – I started with Anna in February, following decades of digestive issues, that culminated in severe pains no matter what I ate, 5 kg underweight,and general misery. I experienced huge pain relief in the first week, so I was encouraged to carry on with her instructions. I am now at a healthy weight, symptom free, eating really well and I am delighted with my progress. Stick with it.
Noreen Walshe, Co. Meath – I was told about Anna by a friend and I went to her about my acid reflux, tenderness, bloating, anxiety levels and general malaise in my digestive system. My creativity was at rock bottom and my getup and go was low. We’re 5 weeks in and there’s more to do but I’ve not felt this well in years. My anxiety is gone, I’m sleeping soundly 10 to 12 hours a night. Energy levels are up and I m walking for Ireland reconnecting with Nature and life.I swear I’m so flipping happy! This is the way life used to be 30/40 years ago. Thank you so much Anna.
Danielle English, Dublin – I started to see Anna last year after she was recommended to me by a friend. I had suffered with an autoimmune gut disease for 13+ years, very sick at times. Once I was hospitalised for 9 days and almost had to have half my bowel removed. (Thankfully I turned a corner at the last min). For all these years I was on many different medications which suppressed my natural immune system. I was always tired, had headaches, joint pain, bad sleep. I would get flare-ups regularly which were very debilitating and humiliating at times. After a few months with Anna I can happily say that I am in remission. I no longer have tummy issues (unless I accidentally eat gluten), I sleep better and never get headaches. My diet is much improved too. Anna is not just about food, she also teaches you tips and tricks to deal with stresses in your everyday life. I won’t lie, it is hard work to stick to the strict food plan, but if you do, the benefits are unbelievable. After 13+ years on harsh medications which made me sick and made my hair fall out,…. I am now medication free since last September! Well worth the time and money. Highly recommend Anna Collins
Lielle Fitzony – Working with Anna has been life changing! I really needed someone who would hold my hand through the process and be a cheerleader for me and she’s both!!! 😊 I am loving food again and feeling so much better already.
Declan Edge, Dublin – Beginning January 2021, I was somewhere in between feeling helpless, overwhelmed and completely confused regarding what foods I should eat to address my auto immune disease. I had been on a predominately raw plant based diet (think Tarzans picnic basket) for some 18 months yet still I was suffering symptoms and flares. I held my head in my hands in Supervalu one day and realised I was on the fast track to developing an eating disorder if I did not get professional help. I was simply afraid of everything on the shelves. I had stopped taking meds 18 months previously as I had suffered many side effects from the drugs which were hampering my quality of life. It felt like the choice was between the symptoms of the disease and the symptoms created by the drugs. At times it was difficult to decide which was worse. I didn’t want to go back ‘there’, to the hospitals and meds but I didn’t know how to heal my body with food. After all my effort, here I was, despite all the sacrifices – sick ! Again ! And so I hit Dr Google and found Anna. I chose Anna as she was local to me and we had a good conversation around where I was and where I wanted to be. She was empathetic on the phone and her own personal background in restoring her health through diet and lifestyle was a win-win for me. Anna revolutionised my diet and with her help not only did my fear of food subside, but a love of food return. My diet today remains plant based which shows Anna’s ability to meet her clients in the middle and work out a protocol suited to them. I thoroughly enjoy my food today with many spices, herbs and alternative treats. I remain symptom free ten months now which equals my longest spell and I hope to build upon my learning with Anna 🙂
Trish Monahan, Dublin – I was recommended Anna by my Osteopath and attending Anna was the best decision I have ever made. I feel my gut health is a lot better. My stomach feels more relaxed even though I have had a massively increased workload at work. I got on better than I thought I would. My digestion is good now. I loved that Anna made realistic expectations and I have learned so much. Thank you Anna.
Elizabeth Ward, Dublin – Anna is an brilliant nutritionist. She is devoted to her work and was extremely thorough at my appointments with her. She got to the root of my digestive problem after many visits to consultants with no satisfaction. I would highly recommend Anna to anyone.
Sylvia Ferguson, yoga and meditation instructor – I highly recommend Anna. The changes she suggested to my food were all easily integrated and I got great results. Skin improved, bone density improved and my overall eating habits are much healthier and easily sustained. This was the best money I ever spent on myself!
Tracey McCabe, Co. Dublin – I would have to give Anna a 5 star review. I have never come across a more knowledgable person who is so well educated in the science of nutrition with such an understanding of medicine too. Anna has a big heart and supports you every step of the way. She is so passionate about what she does that it’s contagious. Anna has worked with my 15 year old daughter and myself over the past 12 months for two differing chronic conditions that we could not get long-term relief from using conventional medicine alone. We are so lucky to be under the care of someone as skilled, knowledgeable and kind-hearted as Anna.
Rhona Fitzpatrick, Killiney – I have worked with Anna for a couple of years now and I’ve had some amazing results! I am going to have bi-annual consultations with her just to check in and keep myself on track. I began consulting with her about gut issues and hair loss and more recently some skin and weight issues. Each time, I’ve seen dramatic results within a few days and Anna always seems to find that missing link that solves your issue! I love that she’s very science and data driven and she is notably up to date on the latest research. I can’t recommend her highly enough and looking at your health via nutrition is one of the best things you’ll ever do!
Lorraine Jones, Dublin – I was diagnosed with autoimmune hypothyroidism (Hashimoto’s) over 10yrs ago. I did a lot of research myself to learn food was healing to most diseases. I was trying out lots of different things I was reading but when I met Anna she brought it all into perspective for me and I could of saved myself a lot of time and money trying out different protocols and supplements. She took some tests so she could hit down on what I needed. She gave me recipes, supplements to detox my body and to increase my minerals etc. I would highly recommend Anna she has in depth knowledge on disease and how food and supplements bring the body back to balance. Thank you Anna
Conor, Dublin – “Anna thanks so much for all of your help. There’s no way in a million years I would be bursting with energy and out for a walk at this time of the morning 3 weeks ago. Completely changed my life so far. Thank you.”
Aideen, Dublin – “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.”
Adriana, Dublin – “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 – “I have a lot more energy and my skin is a lot better.”
Lorna, Skerries – “At the beginning of January 2018 I had a ulcerative colitis flare up. I had my first flare up 4 years earlier and took medication for it. This time I did not want to take drugs or be dependent on them. I wanted a more natural approach so I could somewhat take control of my ailment. So I decided to search for a nutritionist, somebody who specialised in digestive issues. I came across Anna Collins website which struck me as very informative and professional. I made an appointment and had my first consultation. From my first visit I knew I had found somebody who could guide me. Anna listened to my history and then drew up lifestyle, diet and supplement plan for me to follow. Within weeks I had taken control of my flare up and was feeling energised, focused, and less stressed. Over the following weeks Anna would guide me as necessary and was very generous with her time. Her knowledge of digestive issues is prolific. Anna gave me the tools to take control of problems I might have in the future and for that I am forever grateful. If you are of the same mindset as myself and want the tools and knowledge to be the healthiest version of you, then I can’t recommend Anna highly enough. She is the utmost professional.”
Maurita, Dublin – “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!”
Paul, Louth – “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.”
Paula, Dublin – “I initially attended Anna with severe abdominal pain and bloating. This had affected my ability to eat and also my interest in food. Anna explained to me that stress, which had been a big factor in my life for some time, can contribute to these symptoms. With her insight and advice I embarked on a healthy diet enhanced with supplements. After six months I am now feeling very well and I now have the information which Anna shared with me to keep me healthy into the future.”
Tony, Dublin – At the beginning of January 2018 I had a flare up of an autoimmune digestive condition. I had my first flare up 4 years earlier and took medication for it. This time I did not want to take drugs or be dependent on them. I wanted a more natural approach so I could somewhat take control of my ailment.

I made an appointment and had my first consultation. From my first visit I knew I had found somebody who could guide me. Anna listened to my history and then drew up lifestyle, diet and supplement plan for me to follow and advised on some special lab tests. Within weeks I had taken control of my flare up and was feeling energised, focused, and less stressed. Over the following weeks Anna would guide me as necessary and was very generous with her time. Her knowledge of digestive issues is prolific. Anna gave me the tools to take control of problems I might have in the future and for that I am forever grateful.

Carol, Dublin – “I have been a client of Anna Collins for six months, and have to say having a consultation was one of the best decisions I made! I had suffered from a bad breakout of acne and the effects were beginning to affect me more emotionally than the physical pain of my skin being so sensitive.
My first consultation was to determine where I was going wrong, and I never looked back. Anna is encouraging, and always on hand with recipe suggestions and advice on helping me with my skin and food choices. Within a couple of weeks of taking the supplements Anna recommended and more importantly taking on board the eating habits, my skin got noticeably better. The skin is still improving, but my general mood and energy levels are much improved.
I would 100% recommend Anna Collins Nutritional Therapy to anyone having issues particularly with skin – I will never go back to eating previous to my consultations, and I think the most important thing I have learned from this is that I need to look after myself, and the best place to start is by eating healthily with minor changes to begin with!
Thanks Anna for your help, it is much appreciated.”
Eva, Dublin – “I feel so much brighter and livelier. I’m amazed at how much better I feel. I wish I’d had this information when I was 50!”
Melissa, Tipperary – “Last year, I suffered from stomach pains, bloating and hormonal imbalance and I went to see Anna to seek some help. She put me on a simple dietary and lifestyle changes that were easy to fit into my life. After 12 weeks my symptoms disappeared and today I still follow her helpful guidelines most of the time. She always worked with so much enthusiasm and expertise that I strongly recommend her to you if you need to improve your health.”
Edelle, Killiney – “I suffered for 20 years with chronic IBS and impaction for the last 3 years. I visited Anna five times over 5 months and by the 5th visit it was totally resolved. I can’t believe it. I don’t need laxatives and sachets to go anymore.”
Angela, Dublin – “Earlier this year I was low in spirit, exhausted, bloated and obviously had health problems. Once in the caring hands of Anna Collins I began to relax and improve. Last Sunday at 74 years of age I attended the Over Fiftys Show for the first time arriving at noon and leaving at 6.30pm still full of vim and vigour.”
Marie, Dublin – “I went to see Anna in November 2011 to see if I could get any relief from the IBS/constipation I put up with for over 50 years. I needed medications every day to try to relieve the constipation, and more often than not the medication became increasingly ineffective over time, which meant I was constantly changing medication. I constantly felt distended and full with low level pain, headache and queasiness. I didn’t sleep well either and woke 4-5 times a night. Over the course of 4 visits in 4 months Anna designed and helped me implement gradually some diet and lifestyle changes. She explained everything and gave the information in a way I could take home and go over easily afterwards. There has been a consistent improvement since November. My bowel is amazing now and I feel it’s the way I want it to be. My sleeping has improved amazingly too. Anna you have changed my life.”
Evelyn, Co. Dublin – “I consulted Anna for a painful bowel disorder (ulcerative colitis). She sugested some easy-to-do changes to my diet and lifestyle. Within a month or so I was much better and within 4 months was symptom-free. My gastro-enterologist has just done some new tests and can’t believe my progress.”
Sharon, Killiney – “I attended Anna in October and November 2011 having suffered with ulcerative colitis/crohns disease for 7 years. It disrupted life every single day. Since my second visit in late November I have been a hell of a lot better and it’s now mid-January 2012!”
William, Derry – “I contacted Anna because I wished to improve my overall general health as I was finding myself susceptible to colds and flu, poor respiration, sleeplessness and an overall lack of energy during the winter months in particular. Anna took the time and care to look at all aspects of my life and lifestyle in great detail in order to consider what could be influencing my condition and what she could do to help. Her action plan helped me to hugely improve my diet and reduce my stress levels significantly, this had a huge effect on my sleeping pattern which is now better than it has ever been, and thus the whole quality of my life has improved greatly. I am now also fitter than I have ever been! The best thing about Anna, apart from her endless knowledge of and passion for nutrition and all things associated with it, is how much time and attention she gives you. You get absolute value for your money and I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
Jane Shortall, choreographer/dancer – “I had my first ever nutritional consultation with Anna Collins a few weeks ago. I would consider my lifestyle to be a very healthy one as I dance for a living, hike, jog and take regular yoga classes. I am also a Pescatarian (I eat fish but no meat) but I found that my energy levels throughout the day would fluctuate and I would often have trouble sleeping….all this has changed since I met Anna, my energy has dramatically changed and my sleep patterns have improved, my skin looks flawless and eyes much whiter and brighter!”
Patricia, Dublin – “I went to see Anna 2 weeks ago about the psoriasis affecting my whole body. Although we only had one consultation, the initial changes Anna recommended have already made a difference. I feel hugely better and have less pain in my body than before (I have psoriatic arthritis). My skin is less red raw. I feel very encouraged to continue with healthier eating.”
Isabel Wynne, Dublin – “I’d suffered with spots for the past couple of years and seen very little improvements with any of the different creams etc I’d tried to try improve the problem. However, I have seen major improvements about a month after seeing you, (dietary changes and one or two supplements) and at the minute have practically no spots, which is an incredible development. I really appreciate the help and feel a lot more confident and happy with the results, so thank you very much!”
Silvana, Dublin – “I finally found Anna after a full year in suffering and pain ended with some invasive medical tests performed in order to exclude any serious health issues. What I have learnt from Anna is how to take good care of myself through the unbelievable healing power of food. It’s so simple, yet so unknown to the general public! Anna has no magic wand. She is an extremely knowledgeable and courteous professional who introduced me to this completely new world. I have never felt so energetic, never had such a sharp mind and positive attitude to life before. I could finally throw all the drugs I’ve been on for ages in the bin. I can never thank Anna enough for that.”
Deirdre, Dublin – “I started seeing Anna because I had a digestive problem my doctor couldn’t help me with. Uncomfortable bloating, cramping and belching were part of my day. After 16 weeks of Anna guiding me through changes to my eating, all my digestive symptoms have disappeared and stayed away.”
Liliana Gaspar, Dublin – “I’m glad I went to see Anna because I was not well at all. I had gastritis, bloating and indigestion after meals (and food intolerances). I often had pain in my abdomen. I didn’t know what to eat and I was worried. Anna reassured me in explaining what had happened and why. She retaught me to eat well again. I took some food supplements to help along the way. After 4 weeks I was less stressed and my digestive pain was improved. After another 6 weeks I felt so much better in myself. Stronger too, and with more energy. And my digestion was better. I want to tell everyone to see a nutritionist like Anna. All that I learned and feeling better helped me to stay positive and confident for my future wellbeing. Thanks again for your great help.”
Lorna, Dublin – “I went to see Anna about acne, which has bothered me since I was 18. For the last 3 weeks I’ve been following most of Anna’s simple recommendations. My skin (and energy) are a LOT better.”
