Zaofishan Qureshi’s approach as a psychotherapist is all about inclusivity and connectedness for everyone.

The line “I have always depended on the kindness of strangers” from Tennessee Williams’ play has always resonated deeply with her.

Zaofishan has been practicing as a psychotherapist since 2017 and has had the honor of knowing many wonderful people along the way. She holds a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and an MPhil focused on Marital Adjustment and Sexual Dysfunctions.

She’s trained in Eidetic Psychotherapy from Eidetic Solutions in Ireland and has additional training as a Trauma-Informed Therapist from the same institute. She’s also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy from the Beck Institute in the USA. She often uses Person-Centered dialogue and principles of Internal Family Systems Therapy in her work.

She works with all kinds of people, including both heterosexual and non-heterosexual individuals, dealing with issues like trauma, gender identity, anxiety, depression, OCD, divorce/breakups, academic issues, belongingness, and sexual dysfunctions.

Zaofishan is also a kink-informed therapist and has experience with individuals and couples from various BDSM backgrounds.

Outside her practice, Zaofishan is a theatre enthusiast and has formal training in writing theatre plays. She’s also an amateur visual artist who regularly shares her work on social media. She believes her creativity greatly influences her as a therapist.

Zaofishan has been a well-known consultant at the Forum for Dignity Initiatives, a non-profit supporting the rights of trans persons and cis women in Islamabad. She has engaged extensively with the Khwaja Sara community and has also worked with trans persons from more privileged backgrounds.

She has taught full-time at multiple universities, including Bahria University and Air University.

Zaofishan is a feminist who keeps herself updated with training programs like the Feminist Capacity Building Program by Sangat Network (Rozan NGO) and the Men & Masculinities Training by Rozan NGO.

She pioneered the mental health training program in Baluchistan and successfully ran the Professional Capacity Building Program in collaboration with Dr. Ghulam Rasool of the Baluchistan Institute of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences for psychiatry residents and fresh clinical psychology graduates. She provided supervision and training for the program at the institute.

Zaofishan continually works on improving herself and regularly receives therapy. She understands the struggles, the hope, and the hopelessness we all go through. If you’ve read this far, you might want to give therapy a shot.

Currently, Zaofishan is offering remote sessions only, with fees ranging from $30 to $50. She offers a brief, no-cost consultation before mutually deciding to start therapy.
