Manuel Dupuis psychologue du sport, et Thomas Chatelle

Conferences for parents of athletes

For several months I have focused quite a lot on the parents of players. Many parents who follow their child, sometimes into adulthood, ask questions about how to help their children psychologically in the face of the various challenges faced by athletes.

I have given a few conferences on this subject. The most recent, on January 31, I had the opportunity to work with Thomas Chatelle, a former high-level footballer. Thanks to him for his valuable help and skills.

Some news about my teaching activities, variable depending on my availability and current priorities:

Trainer in sports psychology for the Belgian Football Union

In September I resumed teaching the psychology of football performance for coaches in training for the UEFA A coaching diploma, for the ACFF (French-speaking football part in Belgium)

Members of the Jury for the University Diploma of Mental Preparation in France

Since June, I have been a member of the jury for obtaining the University Diploma in Mental Preparation, intervention and support for sports performance, at the University of Clermont Auvergne (France)

Psychology and parents (for Psychosport)

Currently for Psychosport, a focus is on parents in sport: place and role, relationships with staff and their children, advice, etc. Conferences are currently taking place in football clubs but a conference will be organized in early 2024 for a wide audience parents (information coming soon on the Psychosport calendar)

Since last summer, I left my employee position as therapeutic manager at the Espérance center. Since then, I have offered more flexibility privately by refocusing on my clinical psychology and psychotherapeutic consultations in Woluwé and Schaerbeek, mainly for adults, but also young people. I am also more flexible in my activity as a sports psychologist. I also continue teaching at the Free University of Brussels for BAC 3 in psychology (exercise assistant).
