Software engineer Ahmed Abu el-Haz was going through a debilitating phase in his life after an operation. Being the dynamic and vibrant person he is, the surgeon’s instructions hit him hard: bed rest for three months.
He fought to think positively, but weary thoughts consumed him. He knew he needed psychological help to get through the dull, repetitive days, but he was bedbound during his recovery.
This is when he decided to create Shezlong: a platform to bring online psychological therapy to anyone in the MENA region who struggles with the daily battle of their own mind.
