PSYCHOLOGY SUPERVISION AND CPD
For those wanting to qualify as a sport and exercise psychologist supervision is a mandatory part of the process. Matthew is an applied practice supervisor with both the British Psychological Society and The British Association for Sport and Exercise Sciences. In addition to formal supervision for qualifications Matthew also provides supervision for already qualified psychologists that are looking for someone to quality assure their work and develop further as professional psychologists.
Finally Matthew provides training to other sport psychologists and often runs events for CPD. Check below for upcoming and previous events.
Matthew is one of only a handful of supervisors that has been through the qualification in sport and exercise psychology, this puts him in a unique position to offer supervision using his own experiences of completing the process, and knowing exactly what it takes to be a sport and exercise psychologist working at the highest level and in independent private practice. Supervision is done monthly in a group based session for a minimum of two hours. Supervisees also spend up to one hour a month in individual supervision with Matthew where we discuss current cases that you are working on.
Supervision doesn't just stop after qualification. Whilst it is not required in sport and exercise psychology it is best practice to engage in supervision with another psychologist who can help you to reflect on and show you blind spots in your work.
I offer post-qualification supervision to sport and exercise psychologists supervising their case loads.
A typical supervision session will look like:
Setting the agenda for the session.
Discussion of specific cases.
Reflection on own performance.
Actioning planning for coming sessions.
UPCOMING AND PREVIOUS WORKSHOPS
In addition to supervision Matthew provides training events and workshops. Usually held in London and Kent, these are often exclusive events that have a limited number of participant spaces. The spaces book up quickly so get involved as soon as you see the advert.
