Anna Friis is a New-Zealand registered health psychologist. She has recently completed her PhD at the University of Auckland’s Department of Psychological Medicine, a program of theoretical, cross-sectional and experimental studies investigating the health benefits of self-compassion among diabetes patients. Her PhD culminated in a randomized controlled trial of the MSC eight-week program with results that showed improvements in both psychological and physiological outcomes in this hard-to-treat group. As a psychologist in private practice, Anna specializes in mindfulness and self-compassion-based therapies, and gives frequent talks and seminars on the mind-body health benefits of self-compassion. She is a devoted yoga practitioner and has taught the Mindful Self-Compassion program many times.
