Our Hold Me Tight® Workshop for Couples is based on Attachment Theory, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, and the international best-selling book “Hold Me Tight: 7 Conversations for a Lifetime of Love” by Dr. Sue Johnson. 

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy has been shown through research to be the most effective approach to helping couples:

  • Change the negative cycle of repetitive arguments and distancing that can cause alienation, frustration, and pain;
  • Understand emotions and needs in romantic relationships and how to tend to each other in a way that creates positive, bonding moments;
  • Begin to repair old relationship injuries and how to build more trust moving forward;
  • Learn and practice a new way of communicating with each other that promotes a closer connection, more effective problem solving skills, and can help you have more fun and freedom together in your life.
