MADELEINE EPPENSTEINER

is a sport psychologist (M.Sc.) and systemic coach located in Hohenems, Austria. She is the founder and CEO of Climbing Psychology.

She has been climbing, learning and exploring for as long as she can remember. Throughout the past decade, she travelled the world representing Austria at youth climbing competitions and later on in the one or other Bouldering World Cup –having done a masters degree in psychology along the way. She is specialized in sport psychology and fascinated by the psychological effect on sport performance, especially observing how new perspectives can push athletes higher and further than ever before. Her personal background lies in climbing for which reason her my main focus is in climbing psychology.
