I hope you know the graph of y=sec(x). y=a{sec[(x-c)/b]}+d is shifted up d units and left c units, and is stretched vertically a units and horizontally b units (make sure you stretch it before shifting it!!!). In your equation, the only one of those operations involved is shifting the graph right -pi/2 units, i.e., left pi/2 units (a positive shift in one direction is equivalent to a negative shift in the opposite direction).
