An Examination of Gaining Entry in Sport Psychology

Gaining entry into employment as a Sport Psychologist is a crucial stage in any intervention and consultancy process, yet it is one that has yet to be the focus of study. This project aims to examine the process of gaining entry as a Sport Psychologist from previously unstudied perspectives and with novel research designs to elicit a deeper understanding of this phase of consultancy.
