Our Vision


EXIST was founded and is run by Omar Nafie. The vision behind its establishment was to fill a gap in the rapidly developing field of mental health care in Egypt by creating a facility, well equipped to provide clients with a safe place to overcome their struggles. It is a comfortable and private environment that allows the client to reflect, find meaning and creatively shape their life and direction in a manner that respects their values and capacity for self-determination. At EXIST we follow a strict and binding code of ethics to ensure that our priority is to always uphold our clients’ best interest.


EXIST is home to a unique and highly qualified team of therapists. Whether you’re seeking counseling for marriage or family issues, depression & anxiety, sex addiction, substance abuse, eating disorders, trauma or any number of other life issues, our counselors and their years of training and experience are here to help.


At EXIST we believe that the mind and body are inseparable and there is growing evidence that many psychological issues are in fact bio-psycho-socio-spiritual related issues. We are therefore, also intent on bringing service providers together in a network that optimizes client’s access to specialized service and care.


Finally, It is a place that offers practitioners in the field the opportunity for continuing professional development to ensure practice that is governed by high ethical standards and counselling skills.
