Sports Psychology Chicago

The Sports Motivation Clinic

I'm Paul S. Palmer, director of the Sports Motivation Clinic and author of Performing Under Pressure. I've been helping athletes in the Chicago Area discover their mental game since 1985.

     Sports Psychology is not just for elite athletes. Every athlete from grammar school to the pro's needs to discover how their mental game works. Some athletes play on raw physical talent and get by, while the smart ones discover how to maximize their physical abilities with a strong mental game. How you play when it counts (under pressure) is more important than being the best physical specimen on the field.

What does an Office Visit cost?

     A private session for any amateur athlete and your own custom CD, the cost is only $250. Pros pay $2500. During busy times, a $45.00 deposit will be asked to hold your appointment time. Refundable with 24 hour notice. Visa/MasterCard, Discover or mail Check.

Attention Moms and Dads!

     Got a kid with some physical talent? How well do they perform under pressure? How are their grades? Thinking of college? Average cost of a state college is $22,000 a year. A private college can cost $55,000 annually and more. I hate to bring it up but there are half a million other kids, just as physically gifted looking for a SCHOLARSHIP. Coaches look for the ability to play under pressure. If your athlete is blessed with physical ability, they can play that card for a while. But as they rise through each new level of competition the need for mental toughness increases. You already know that! Don't wait to get them help developing their mental game!
Parental Note: I always work with a student/athlete with a parent present.

Coaches & Instructors

     If it's true that game time performance is 90% mental, you better be an expert in all the nuances' that control mental performance. Are you? The best game plan, the best conditioning regiment and a thousand repetitions mean nothing if your athletes don't know where their Peak Performance Zone is at. Recognizing where that mental ZONE is at, is the only way to be there, with 3 seconds left on the clock. Do you teach them how to find their ZONE and how to stay there, under pressure? If you don't, the most important part of game time performance will always be a crap shoot. I teach athletes how to recognize and practice being in their Peak Performance Zone. I could teach you too!

What will you teach me?

     I'll teach you two essential things. FIRST, how to recognize your Peak Performance Zone. If you don't know where or what your zone is you'll never be able to repeat it, much less be able to slip into it when it counts the most. SECOND, once you know where your zone is (how to identify it) you need to practice being there. The only way to do that is through mental rehearsal. Mental rehearsal is a skill all unto itself and it's not done on the field, in the locker room or in the classroom. The good news is mental rehearsal can be short and sweet if you know all the secrets that make it work. Not one athlete that I have worked with ever knew how to properly practice being in their zone. That is why I make you a custom CD to guide you through the mental rehearsal process. See The Zone for more details.

What Sports do you work with?

     EVERY SPORT. The mental side of competition and pressure is the same for every sport. The most obvious sports I work with are baseball, football, soccer, basketball, golf, hockey any team sport and injury rehab.
