Sports Psychology: Dr. Kristin Keim on Winning & Being Happy
Mindful peak performance, anxiety management
Sports Psychologist Kristin Keim is our guest this week. She works across all sports, with particular expertise in cycling, where she was once an elite rider. She also works extensively with athletes in triathlon, running, rowing, swimming and several other sports.
Dr. Keim has a PsyD in clinical psychology and an M.A. in Sport Psychology from John F. Kennedy University in California.
We discuss some deep topics in this wide-ranging interview but in a fun way, trust me. Subjects include Kristin’s experiences working closely with a medal-contending athlete in Rio 2016, as well as her clinical specialisms in anxiety, depression, easting disorders, obsessive-compulsive behavior and attention deficit-hyperactity, among the many issues that athletes, coaches and non-sporty people contend with.
