Kanza Ashfaq

She has done her Honors in Applied Psychology from Kinnaird College for Women, Lahore. Her interaction with mental health has been boosted up by volunteering at the psychiatry ward of Sheikh Zayed Hospital, Lahore where she was exposed to deal with people encountering depression, stress, anxiety, relational conflicts and OCD. Taking sessions and observation has led her to have a closer picture of mental illness. She believes that people should accept mental illness as an ‘illness’. The more we talk about it, the more it leads to ease. She thinks that having someone to understand your thoughts is a different kind of intimacy, so let’s join hands to understand and encounter your thoughts, to tackle them, to fight with them and to win them over. You don’t really have to control your thoughts, you just have to stop letting them control you instead. So here she is, to help you get free from these thoughts, to enlighten you how to face them and how to live with them.
