Abstract: Psychological flexibility and self-compassion have been identified as important factors that contribute to the well-being of students in university, which is a uniquely stressful developmental period. This study aimed to explore the relationship between psychological flexibility, self-compassion and well-being in an undergraduate population, specifically the potential role of self-compassion as a mediator for the relationship between psychological flexibility and well-being. It was hypothesised that self-compassion would mediate the relationship between psychological flexibility and well-being, as defined in this study by quality of life and mental health. Relationships among these constructs of interest were explored using survey data from a sample of 155 undergraduates. Results from correlation analysis showed strong associations between psychological flexibility, self-compassion, and well-being. Results from simple mediation analyses suggested that the influence of psychological flexibility on wellbeing was indeed mediated by self-compassion. These findings contribute to the growing body of research on psychological flexibility, and highlight the importance of enhancing psychological flexibility and self-compassion in promoting well-being among university students. Theoretical and practical implications of the results, along with recommendations for future research, are discussed.
