ONE-ON-ON SESSIONS WITH ATHLETES

Individual work with athletes emphasizes the social and developmental aspects of sport participation and targets every athlete’s personal growth within and outside of athletics. Your student-athlete can expect to build stronger and more intentional focus, more consistent motivation and energy levels, better confidence, and a more balanced perspective on his or her role and identity as an athlete.  

ONE-ON-ONE SESSIONS WITH PARENTS

Sports psychology sessions with parents will vary based on need, but common topics include: introducing your athlete to sport psychology, reinforcing healthy values, handling winning and losing, maintaining constructive lines of communication, managing sport life balances, and establishing household wellness routines.

ATHLETE/PARENT SESSIONS

Our family sessions prioritize healthy, fulfilling dynamics between you and your athlete.  Participation in sport can enhance these relationships. We can also perform helpful tests that help provide insight. Our family sessions can address family and athletic values, constructive lines of communication, expectations, and conflict resolution in an effort to broker better understandings and unity between parent and athlete.

WHO WE HELP

Premier Sport Psychology works with individuals ranging from Olympic competitors and professional athletes, to youth athletes in their grade school years. No goal is too small to prioritize, no obstacle is too large to overcome.

We tailor our services to meet the unique needs, challenges, and sensibilities of your student-athletes, and as mental health professionals, provide safe, supportive, and confidential care for all of our athletes, parents, and coaches.

How Sports Psychology at Premier Sport Psychology Can Help

INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS

Sport psychology sessions approach each individual holistically and target any conditions that may be impacting performance, livelihood, or mental health.

Some athletes bring with them goals, some bring obstacles, and others bring a simple desire to feel better about themselves, their teammates, and their sport. Whatever the athletes’ needs, we’ll equip them with the mindset and the skills they need to meet the demands of their sport and life squarely and responsibly.

ASSESSMENTS

Assessments allow athletes to gain critical self-awareness in areas that underpin performance, leadership, and successful communication.

Our sport psychologists are trained in administering and evaluating six different assessment instruments related to personal, interpersonal, and performance dynamics — including athletic intelligence, responsiveness to adversity, emotional intelligence, ADHD, behavioral traits, and communication styles.

ONLINE TRAINING

Like any training, mindset optimization requires repetition and routine. The Premier Mindset Academy allows athletes to move through the mental training techniques most directly related to performance enhancement in their own homes and at their own pace.

WHY SPORT PSYCHOLOGY?

How can sport psychology benefit my sport athlete?

WHAT IMPROVES PERFORMANCE, IMPROVES WELL-BEING

Your athlete is likely concerned with his/her performance on the field, the court, the rink, the track, or the mat. We’ll help with that. Rest assured, however, that every step in that process will require your athlete to identify those elements of his/her life that are healthy and those that are unhealthy. Sport psychology reinforces this kind of awareness and provides athletes with the skills to nourish what’s best in their lives and address what’s holding them back.

IMPROVED COMMUNICATION

Sport psychology gives athletes the language to describe their emotions, their thoughts, their hopes, and their fears. It encourages them to communicate with their teammates, their coaches, their friends, and their family members — whether it be to create accountability and structure in their routines, or to gain strength and understanding from their support systems. This opens the door to healthy, productive conversations that many athletes previously found difficult.

A BALANCED TOOLBOX

Sport psychology seldom offers singular approaches to performance enhancement. We view performance dynamics holistically and treat them holistically by accumulating a network of complementary skills and routines. This leaves athletes with a variety of tools to unlock their potential, meet the challenges of their sport, and meet the challenges in their lives.
