About the Workshop

We are Certified Emotionally Focused Therapists and are here to assist you in our new virtual Couples Workshop based upon evidence-based Emotionally Focused Therapy and the brilliant work of Dr. Sue Johnson. By attending our Virtual Hold Me Tight® Workshop, you will discover and experience a new way of connecting with your partner. Dr Sue Johnson developed the Hold Me Tight® program based on Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and her bestselling book, Hold Me Tight, Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love. The following are some of the new ways of how to express love you will learn in this workshop:

1) Learn how to be vulnerable and express your emotions with clarity without attacking or criticizing your partner.

2) Understand your negative interactions, how they become negative cycle patterns and how to get out of them.

3) Become more A.R.E., "accessible, responsive and emotionally engaged" with one another.

5) Learn how to apologize, forgive and repair past injuries.

6) Take emotional risks through honesty and vulnerability.

7) Increase your emotional, physical and sexual closeness.

The focus of Emotionally Focused Therapy is to help partners to more clearly express each other’s deepest emotions. Feelings are often hidden, unexpressed and/or misunderstood. During Covid, our relationships have become more strained and stressful due to the increased amount of time we have with one another. In EFT, we help couples learn how to slow down, be vulnerable to identify their primary feelings together, reach towards each other compassionately, take more emotional risks and be responsive in more empathic and loving ways.

Dr Sue Johnson developed the Hold Me Tight® program based on Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and her bestselling book, Hold Me Tight, Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love. Hold Me Tight® is a registered trademark to Sue Johnson.

Dr. Sue Johnson is the primary founder and developer of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) which has demonstrated its effectiveness in over 30 years of peer-reviewed clinical research. The incredible success of EFT and Attachment Theory has been revered in many scientific journals, and professional organizations such as the American Psychological Association and media like the New York Times.

Please note that we will try to keep the groups small and intimate. if you are certain that you want to sign up, we encourage you to do so shortly, as it tends to fill up. SPACE WILL BE LIMITED SO SIGN UP SOON.

During this pandemic, take the time to enroll in this convenient virtual workshop that will help you 1) deepen your love and connection, 2) develop new skills to recognize the cycle and patterns that harm your relationship and keep you separate and apart, and 3) begin to confidently highlight the strengths of your relationship, and build on love that already exists. If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We love working with couples and have extensive experience to help support you with wonderful resources that will be eye-opening and life-changing. We look forward to working with you soon!
