Sport psychology practitioners (SPPs) face unique challenges associated with the nature of their profession, which can result in negative consequences to their well-being and to the quality of their service delivery. Therefore, SPPs must aim to promote their own well-being by engaging in self-care practices. Recent literature highlighted the importance of self-care for SPPs, however no clear recommendations as of how SPPs can identify, develop, and implement self-care practices exist. Based on our experience in delivering workshops on self-care to SPPs, grounded in the existing literature, we offered some guidance of how SPPs can develop their own self-care plan.
