Dr Omara Naseem
leading expert in treating eating disorders
Omara helped me work through my eating disorder to get to a healthier weight whilst enabling me to develop my own mental health ‘toolkit’ for the future.
Omara is friendly and approachable whilst always maintaining a very professional manner. It felt as though the sessions and treatment were tailored and specific to my circumstances.
It has been a privilege to experience therapy and to have you as a therapist has been a delight.
I know it will be okay because I have the tools I need and I am no longer so scared of using them. Nor am I afraid of the future.
I never believed I would get to this point of recovery, yet here we are. Thank you.

Recovery from an eating disorder is possible at any age, and after any length of illness
I am a Specialist Chartered Counselling Psychologist, who is an expert in treating eating disorders among many other mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, body image issues and low self-esteem.

I am passionate about helping others and therapy is individually tailored for each person I work with rather than a one size fits all approach.
