This portfolio demonstrates my personal and professional development as a trainee sport and exercise psychologist during the Professional Doctorate in Sport and Exercise Psychology at Liverpool John Moores University. The portfolio provides evidence of how I meet the competencies (professional standards, consultancy, research, teaching, and dissemination) of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) for ‘Chartered’ and ‘Practitioner’ Psychologists.
The selected reading highlights literature that was influential to my personal and professional development. The practice log demonstrates the hours I spent on each learning outcome. The reflective diary highlights my learning experiences and critical moments central to the development of my personal philosophy, approach to practice, and personal development. Four applied case studies are presented. These provide accounts of my approach to service delivery in applied work, teaching, and dissemination. The case studies demonstrate work across different settings: with youth academy football coaches, an injured ballet dancer, a ballet dancer experiencing an eating disorder and ethical challenges within a ballet academy, and a psychology support program in a professional dance college.
The scoping review examined resilience in elite sport. A common thread of the empirical papers is elite youth academy football. The first empirical paper explores practitioner’s design and delivery of an existential psychology program. The second empirical paper explores Team Formulation.
The reflective commentary brings together my training which includes what I have learned, how I developed competencies, and how it has contributed to the development of a coherent and congruent approach to practice.
