Designed by leading psychologist and TED speaker Dr. Guy Winch

This pathway was designed by emotional resilience expert Dr. Guy Winch, a leading psychologist, author, and TED speaker.

Dr. Winch is a psychologist known for his work on emotional health and relationships. He is the author of Emotional First Aid: Healing Rejection, Guilt, Failure, and Other Everyday Hurts; and How to Fix a Broken Heart, which have been translated into 28 languages. 

Dr. Winch received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from New York University and has gone on to give TED Talks on How To Fix a Broken Heart and Why We All Need to Practice Emotional First Aid. He hosts the popular podcast “Dear Therapists” on iHeart Radio which focuses on giving people concrete, actionable advice to help them navigate life’s challenges.

It is designed to help anyone dealing with feelings of rejection or failure, whether they be romantic (divorce or break-ups), professional (job loss or failed interview), or personal (financial failure, miscarriages, or academic setbacks).

Faster results powered by neuroplasticity

Achieve results faster through ketamine’s ability to help shift thinking and change habits.

Ketamine has been shown to increase neuroplasticity, or the ability of the brain to form new neural connections. This pathway uses the brain’s increased neuroplasticity to shift behavior, alter thinking patterns, and help you move past failure and rejection quickly and productively. 

Using the science of ketamine, combined with Dr. Guy Winch’s proven approach, you can bounce back from rejection and failure more quickly, and avoid similar experiences in the future by learning the skills and techniques for long-term resiliency.

Build resilience through practical skills

Gain practical tools to handle rejection and failure in productive and helpful ways.

Rejection and failure are inescapable parts of life. Whether it's ending a relationship or losing a job, these emotional wounds happen to everyone. You can't always avoid them, but you can control how you react to these setbacks. This program is focused on helping you name your emotional challenges and master them with clear, actionable techniques. 

  • Turn rumination into introspection with practical skills that eliminate negative rumination over past failures.
  • Combat self-criticism by learning actionable techniques to build self-compassion and self-worth.
  • Learn how your relationships with others can help you recover from emotional wounds more quickly.
  • Build emotional resilience to bounce back from rejection and failure faster in the future.
  • Gain new skills that apply to other emotional wounds, including loss, grief, overwhelm, and more.
