About Hold Me Tight® Couples Workshop


Hold Me Tight Couples Workshop is based on the research and practices of Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT). Hold Me Tight® Couples Workshop is an educational workshop designed to help you build your relationship, protect your investment in each other, strengthen your connection so you feel important, valued and have a Lifetime of Love.


The Hold Me Tight® program for couples was 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, and recently released Love Sense.


This Couples Workshop is facilitated by Dr. Rebecca Jorgensen


and offers a safe and supportive opportunity to help you deepen your understanding of yourself and your partner, communicate
better, solve the biggest problem you face together and deepen your closeness. No matter the stage of your relationship, married or not, the Hold Me Tight© couples workshop can help you create a more loving bond with your partner. The couples workshop will introduce you to the new science of love, how the design of the human brain impacts your relationship and how to use what often works against you to your advantage. In addition to learning the science of love, you will to understand the logic of emotion and how to use it effectively to connect and support each other so you can stop worrying about if you’re going to stay together or not. This is designed to help you feel secure being together.


While sharing comments and questions in the large group is usually fun and beneficial, you only share if you want to. You will have lots of time to have conversations with just you and your partner so you can feel comfortable and maintain your privacy.


All couples are welcome in this couples workshop regardless of marital status, age, faith or sexual orientation.


This is and educational workshop and supports therapy nicely but does not replace it if your relationship is in high distress.
