This portfolio is a depiction of over two years of work for the purposes of fulfilling the five competencies to meet the criteria for Stage 2 Training as a Health Psychologist. These competencies are set out by the British Psychological Society and the Health and Care Professions Council, and they include; Professional Skills (Chapter 1, p. 11), Research (Chapter 2, p. 83) Behaviour Change Interventions (Chapter 4, p. 186), Teaching and Training (Chapter 4, p. 223), and Consultancy (Chapter 5, p. 266). This portfolio contains both descriptive, and reflective practice examples in addition to empirical research.
The portfolio is based on my work as a Trainee Health Psychologist across three different placements including a primary care mental health service, private practice, and working for a health technology company. Each competency was met whilst following the BPS/HCPC code of conduct, and adhering to the highest professional and ethical standards. My roles have spanned across the UK and Ireland, and given the Covid-19 pandemic, some of the work was conducted online.
