Dr. Anna Friis

Anna Friis Bio Photo Anna is a New Zealand-registered health psychologist. As well as seeing private psychology clients, she runs regular training courses in self-compassion and emotional resilience. She was one of the first teachers to be trained in Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) by the programme's founders, Drs Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer. As part of increasing scientific understanding of the effects of mindfulness and self-compassion, she undertook  a Ph.D  through the University of Auckland, creating new knowledge of the mental and physical health effects of these ancient practises. She also holds the degree of Bachelor of Arts (political studies) and has a Post Graduate Diploma in Science (Distinction), a Master's degree in Science  (1st Class Honours) and a Post Graduate Diploma in Health Psychology. She first worked as a journalist and has had a substantial career in corporate communications, specialising in crisis management. Anna and her husband live in Auckland, New Zealand. They have three adult children and an adorable dog called Toby.
