    Holmes and Collins’ (2001) PETTLEP model of imagery provides a framework for the effective execution of imagery interventions. The model includes seven key components to consider when developing an intervention, denoted by the acronym PETTLEP (Physical, Environment, Task, Timing, Learning, Emotion, Perspective). Over recent years, the model has gained much research support. This paper explores the research that has tested the model and provides recommendations for those interested in implementing PETTLEP-based imagery interventions, including a summary of our points as a brief take-home guide to implementing PETTLEP interventions.
