Hold Me Tight® Couples Workshop

Upcoming Session:


Hold Me Tight® Couples Workshop

The Hold Me Tight® Couples Workshop, developed by Dr. Sue Johnson, award winning founder of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and author of the book Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love, is an investment in building and strengthening your relationship. 

This course has been taught thousands of times across the world.  Couples who attended previous workshops, including the one I taught in May, have given positive feedback about the experience with their group and the materials.  One couple stated that they feel that the workshop helped them move forward in the work they have been doing in couples counseling. Another couple stated that after the workshop they felt more hopeful about working through their relational struggles.

Seven Conversations

The Hold Me Tight Couples Workshop presents an opportunity for couples to learn about and engage in seven conversations that capture the defining moments in a love relationship. Each participant will engage in these seven conversations with their partner:

  1. Recognizing Demon Dialogues—Couples identify negative and destructive patterns that keep them stuck in unproductive dialogues.

  2. Finding the Raw Spots—Each partner learns to look beyond immediate, impulsive reactions to learn about their partner’s underlying experience.

  3. Revisiting a Rocky Moment—This conversation provides a platform for de-escalating conflict, repairing rifts in a relationship, and building emotional safety.

  4. Hold Me Tight—The heart of the program: this conversation moves partners into being more accessible, emotionally responsive, and deeply engaged with each other.

  5. Forgiving Injuries—Knowing how to find and offer forgiveness empowers couples to strengthen their bond.

  6. Bonding Through Sex and Touch—Couples find how emotional connection creates great sex, and good sex creates deeper emotional connection.

  7. Keeping Your Love Alive—This last conversation asks couples to be deliberate and mindful about maintaining connection.

Outcomes of the workshop

Participants will:

  • Better understand the concepts of attachment and adult romantic love.

  • Recognize the negative patterns that often create pain and distance in their relationship.

  • Better understand emotional responses and needs within their relationship context.

  • Be able to shape positive moments of reaching and responding that create a more secure bond.
