Dr Omara Naseem

Dr Omara Naseem is a chartered counselling psychologist working in Central and North London. She offers individual private counselling, assessments, couple’s therapy and coaching. Omara is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and the British Psychological Society and she has over 10 years’ experience working within a variety of NHS and private healthcare settings including The Priory Hayes Grove Hospital and the NHS service. This includes the treatment of Eating Disorders at the South London and Maudsley Hospital (centre of clinical excellence).

Omara has extensive experience working with clients with a wide range of issues and considers herself to be an integrative practitioner tailoring each individual therapy to the needs of each person. She draws on a range of therapeutic approaches including: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic, Person Centred approach, cognitive remediation therapy techniques, mindfulness, integrative, and compassion-focused therapy.

Omara believes that the process of psychological therapy can help people to overcome whatever their situation or difficulty may be, for example coping with difficult emotions, or the experience of loss or unhealthy coping habits. Therapy can improve difficulties in expressing oneself and relating to others as well as developing healthier strategies and techniques for expressing emotions and coping with life’s difficulties.

Omara has conducted research into the areas of male body image, masculinity and self-esteem and has delivered workshops relating to the treatment of eating disorders with the South London and Maudsley NHS trust. She has also worked in the innovative new service for young adults with eating disorders in SLaM, offering tailored online support and group-based therapy. FREED (First episode and Rapid Early intervention for Eating Disorders) aims to facilitate rapid assessment and flexible tailored treatment for young adults with anorexia or bulimia in the early stages of their illness.
