Dr. Guy Winch: licensed psychologist, best selling author, & in-demand keynote speaker

My NativeAdVantage:


Guy Winch, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist, author, and in-demand keynote speaker whose books have been translated into twenty-four languages. His most recent book is Emotional First Aid: Healing Rejection, Guilt, Failure, and Other Everyday Hurts (Plume, 2014). His upcoming book, How to Fix a Broken Heart will be published by TED Books/Simon & Schuster in February 2018. He gave a TED Talk on the topic at TED2017 which will be posted on later this year. The Squeaky Wheel: Complaining the Right Way to Get Results, Improve Your Relationships and Enhance Self-Esteem (Walker & Company) was published in January 2011. Dr. Winch's viral TED Talk, Why We All Need to Practice Emotional First Aid, has been viewed over 5 million times and is rated among the top 5 most inspiring talks of all time on Dr. Winch's work is frequently featured in national and international publications and media. He also writes the popular Squeaky Wheel Blog on Psychology Dr. Winch received his doctorate in clinical psychology from New York University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at NYU Medical Center. He has been working with individuals and couples in his private practice in Manhattan for over twenty years. He is a member of the American Psychological Association.

What do I do best?

I am really good at taking hard-to-understand research findings from scientific journals and translating them into actual tools and techniques people can use to treat common psychological experiences of daily life like rejection, failure, or heartbreak, and improve their overall emotional health.

What makes me the best version of myself?

I’m very persistent and optimistic. For example, I spent 14 years writing before I sold my first book. My last book has been translated into 24 languages and my third book will be in stores any day now. I believe that if something matters enough to you and you keep trying, you will eventually succeed.

What are my aspirations?

My personal goal is to publish a novel at some point in my career—hopefully that won’t take another 14 years… My professional goal is to bring awareness to as many people as possible that we need to spend as much time caring for our emotional health as we do our physical health and that doing so, even spending a few minutes a day, will improve our physical health, our productivity, and our life satisfaction.

My Biggest Success?

My first TED Talk has been seen by over 5 million people and is rated among the top most inspiring TED Talks of all time on Given how personal the talk was (about my relationship with my twin brother), I’m thrilled it continues to touch and impact so many people.

My Most Challenging Moment?

My most challenging decision was to leave my twin brother, with whom I am very close, and move to NYC to get my psychology degree. It meant us living our lives in different countries and far from one another so it was extremely hard at the beginning. But it also opened many doors for me and allowed me to have the career I do today.

My Motto?

Persist, persevere, prevail

My Favorite People/Role Models?

My twin brother inspires me every day. He is the bravest, most generous, kindest, and most caring person I know whose work with people with severe disabilities is changing lives and changing the world as well.

My Favorite Places/Destinations?

If it’s sunny, has history, or even better, ancient history, I’m there. Rome, Jerusalem, Petra, Lascaux (okay, that’s a cave, but still incredible).

My Favorite Products/Objects?

Ergonomic keyboard (a must for writers), coffee (a must for me), and my passport.

My Current Passions?

I love giving talks about emotional health to audiences that are skeptical (such as law-enforcement, bankers, C-suite executives, etc…), making them laugh, making them ‘get-it’, and making them see things about themselves and their lives in a very different way.
