About Hold Me Tight

Do you long to feel connected with your partner again? Do you wish to feel heard and understood and not so alone in your relationship? Do you often end up feeling like you can’t get it right? Maybe you are preparing for marriage and want to understand how to have  a lifelong successful relationship. Or maybe you just want to make a good relationship even stronger. Join us for our transformative couples weekend workshop.

Everyone needs a secure bond with another. This bond offers us a safe haven in the world. Couples get in distress when they become disconnected and that bond does not feel secure. This is a transformative workshop based on the therapy model Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy by Sue Johnson.This workshop will help you better understand romantic love and the pivotal moves and moments that define your relationship. You will be able to shape the positive moments of reaching and responding that create a secure bond. A safe, loving, lasting bond is entirely possible if we have a map. This is a workshop that provides that map.

This workshop is for any couple who wants a better, stronger, intimate relationship. It is good for premarital couples who want to best be prepared for the road ahead to avoid common pitfalls in marriage, it is for struggling couples who want to get unstuck from negative patterns that leave both feeling frustrated and alone. And it is even for healthy couples who want to deepen their intimate connection with one another.

This workshop is not appropriate for couples where there is an active and ongoing affair, active or untreated addiction, or where there is active abuse in the relationship. If you are struggling with any of these issues, please contact us for counseling resources to guide you toward the help you need.
