I’m a Counselling Psychologist, who is an expert in treating eating disorders and own my own private practice in London, England. I have devoted my NHS career to learning about and treating eating disorders and adult mental health issues including depression and anxiety.
For over a decade, I have been using this knowledge to help people through difficult times in their lives in the NHS and in my thriving private practice. Currently in my private practice I have the privilege of working with a diverse group of clients from all backgrounds, each at different stages of their recovery and growth. Regardless of who I work with, whether they are a celebrity or teen with disordered eating, my approach is always tailored to the individual needs of the person.
It is my mission to help as many people as I can in their recovery from an eating disorder and in their journey to better mental health. My practice and knowledge is supported by extensive experience of working not only in the NHS but also private healthcare in the Priory and voluntary sector. I have worked with a wide range of mental health issues including depression, anxiety, burnout, low self-esteem, stress, panic and other conditions.
I have been asked to write features and speak in the press on eating disorders and I have recently appeared on the BBC as an expert in treating eating disorders in Freddie Flintoff’s ‘Living with Bulimia’ documentary.
I never believed I would get to this point of recovery, yet here we are.
Thank you for showing me that health is not a closed question but a multi-faceted component of a full and fun life. Thank you for helping me see that my emotional and relational health and fitness is just as important as my physical strength, if not more so!”
My relationships are richer, my life is happier, my interests are more full and varied. 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. It has been a privilege to experience therapy and to have you as a therapist has been a delight.
I would highly recommend anyone struggling with their mental health and an eating disorder to take that first step towards recovery and contact Omara.
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. Not only did Omara help 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. This has been invaluable in providing me with the skills to manage, improve and maintain my mental health moving forward.
