Are you interested in working in Sport and Exercise Psychology? Join us for an evening of learning about the pathway into this industry and what the day to day work of a sport psychologist entails.

We have created this event as due to confidentiality, gaining work experience in this field is nearly impossible. This event offers the chance to really learn what it is like to work in the sport psychology field!

WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?

This event is open to anyone interested in finding out more about sport and exercise psychology. You may be in school, at university at undergrad or MSc level, considering a career change or even at the start of your Stage 2 journey.

EVENT AGENDA

The event will consist of two panels:

1. The first talk will focus on the formal pathways into sport and exercise psychology

2. The second panel will explore the day to day life of working in sport and exercise psychology including how to build a private practice and an insight into working with individual clients vs. teams. It will also include real-life case studies so that you can explore what it is like to work with clients!

After each panel there will be a Q&A with the panel members.

*Only 30 tickets available. This will be an intimate event.

Serena also presents group workshops to clubs, universities, governing bodies and organisations on various topics including building team cohesion, goal-setting, pre-performance routines and self-confidence.

Hannah Winter: Hannah is a performance psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society.

She has experience working with clients across a range of sports including tennis, football, swimming, cycling, running, triathlon, rowing, netball, fencing, skiing and rugby. Hannah places a significant emphasis on building strong relationships with her clients.

Alex Stoyel (chair): Alex has an MSc in Psychology and is currently undertaking an MSc in Sport Psychology at the University of Roehampton. After a career in management consultancy, Alex is excited to embark on a new career that will use his problem-solving skills to help individuals rather than corporations.

As a former high-level swimmer, sport is a passion for Alex. He is keen to learn more about the careers of those in sports and sports science: "From my own experience, I know that an athlete’s performance is built of multiple components, with help of numerous individuals. As such, I keen to understand not just the mental side of performance, but a more holistic view of sport science that includes elements of physiotherapy, nutrition and coaching."
