Condensed One-Day or Full Two-Day Formats:
Hold Me Tight® workshops create a space where you can get away from the world and, with support of well-trained couples therapists, experience a new way of connecting. You will learn to understand your needs in your love relationship and how to respond to those of your partner. You will learn why sometimes you completely miss each other and how to maintain emotional balance in the moments that hurt. Then we show you how to come close and share the most tender parts of yourself in a way that helps your partner respond to you in a way that feels oh so good. Because that is what creates a lasting bond that can keep your love alive…forever!
These weekend workshops are effective, safe, supportive, and validating. Most importantly, they are positive, proactive and fun! The tools you learn will continue to serve your relationship long afterward. The workshops are for committed couples who want to enhance their relationship. Workshops are not recommended for couples with a high level of distress. There is great emphasis on privacy, comfort, and confidentiality. Further, although we encourage questions and comments, you will not be expected to participate in group discussions. All of the conversations and exercises will be done with your partner privately. All couples regardless of relationship length, relationship status, religious background, or sexual orientation, are welcome at the workshop.
The One-Day Workshop focuses on the importance of Attachment and Connection in loving relationships with the afternoon focus on promoting intimacy. The Two-Day Workshop is designed around seven conversations which increase partner’s levels of emotional safety and connection. Both days will promote intimacy and understanding through:
private conversations and exercises
specific instructions from trained and qualified presenters
Whether you choose the one or two day workshop, the Hold Me Tight Couples Workshops are effective, safe, supportive, and validating. Most importantly, the time together will be Positive, Proactive and FUN! The tools you learn will continue to serve your relationship long into the future.
