how to be happy or contented in their lives, which eventually helps them
maintain balance in their psychological and emotional health. At times, due to
busy life schedules and pressures of daily living, we may restrain ourselves
from happiness. Being cognisant of the importance of emotional wellbeing, NUST Centre

Counselling, Testing & Assessment, Signature Analysis and Self-hypnosis. An
overwhelming number of students, faculty and staff members registered
