This doctoral portfolio represents the culmination of my professional doctorate in Sport and Exercise Psychology. It provides a comprehensive overview of my transformation from a novice to a proficient practitioner. The portfolio comprises three consultancy case studies that delve into the dynamics of the client-practitioner relationship and the practical application of psychological principles to enhance performance and well-being. It includes a consultancy contract report, shedding light on the ethical considerations and professional boundaries inherent in applied practice. The teaching and training component highlights my growth as an educator, featuring a case study, a teaching diary, and an insightful comparative analysis of teaching experiences. The research segment of the portfolio includes a systematic review that critically evaluates the quality of evidence in psychological skills training, emphasising the necessity for rigorous methodologies. It also encompasses two empirical studies, revealing my competence in research design, data analysis, and interpretation. The portfolio concludes with a reflective research commentary, emphasising the pivotal role of research in evidence-based practice, encapsulating lessons learned and ethical considerations. Complementing these components are a practice log of training and a reflective practice log that document my experiential journey, and a reflective practice commentary that encapsulates my evolution from a trainee to a proficient sport and exercise psychologist. This portfolio stands as a testament to my growth, skill development, and ethical commitment throughout the doctoral journey.
