Bio and Qualifications:

I am an early career researcher, therefore my experience in this area is limited, however during the completion of my Master of Counselling at the University of Queensland I have completed this pilot study to investigate the ability of self-talk to indicate both self-compassion and compassion for others in adolescents. During my Master of Counselling, several of my research areas involved investigation of self-compassion. Additionally, while working as a student counsellor, I have experience implementing compassion focused therapy to adolescents and assessing improvements in well-being and symptoms after completion of compassion focused therapy.
