This Sport and Exercise Psychology Professional Doctorate portfolio offers an overview of all my experiences encompassed from an applied consultancy, dissemination, and research perspective. These experiences are aligned with the four competencies of ethics and professional standards, consultancy, dissemination, and research. The portfolio begins to explore the three applied case studies from a mixture of my football and exercise psychology encounters. From applied consultancy to research and teaching experiences there is a balance of sport (particularly football) and exercise psychology. The third case study provides an insight into supporting weight management and lifestyle needs of a youth team football player, whilst immersed in a competitive a fast-paced football environment. Through engagement in these main applied consulting experiences, my development and progression has been supported by various other sporting (e.g., boxing and rugby) and exercise (e.g., private practice with clients in physical activity and exercise health) consultations. As a reader you will be presented within this portfolio the evolution of my applied practice philosophy relative to these consulting experiences across the doctorate programme. Following on, are authentic and contemporary engagements with preparation, planning, delivery and evaluation of teaching and training experiences. This has ranged from supporting a PhD study with co-teaching, to sessional cover at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) and progressing to a full-time lecturing role in year 3 of the doctorate. Towards the latter of this portfolio, you will be presented with research engagement compromising the growth in my philosophical assumptions through the systematic review, both empirical papers and research commentary.
