Hold Me Tight® – Couples Workshop – Charlotte, NC

A 2-Day Event – 7 Conversations For You and Your Partner

Based on these books by Dr. Sue Johnson.

This Hold Me Tight® weekend workshop is ideal if:

  • You want to improve your relationship and learn to communicate in new ways.
  • You want a relationship filled with more understanding, warmth, closeness and connection.

Or if you’d like to:

  • Feel more accepted by your partner.
  • Understand each other better.
  • Have more conversation and less conflict.
  • Feel like your partner is more engaged with you.

This gentle yet structured workshop is safe, supportive and fun. We help eliminate the kind of confusion that can lead any couple into feelings of frustration and isolation.

It’s important to know that Dr. Sue Johnson is the primary developer of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) which has proven to be the most effective method available to couples — especially those wanting closeness and connection. More than 25 years of peer-review and clinical research have demonstrated it’s remarkable success. It’s also the only method we use at Wellness where our team works with couples every day.

The focus of EFT, and our Hold Me Tight® Workshop, is to help you and your partner understand each other’s deepest emotions and concerns; to help you get on the same page. For most people, feelings can be hidden, unexpressed or misunderstood. That’s when relationships become stressful or cause pain and stop being a source of comfort and happiness.

At our Hold Me Tight® Workshops, we guide you through conversations where you and your partner can learn to discuss emotions safely and move toward each other rather than turning away and having to go it alone. Learning how to be a little bit closer, loving and responsive can change everything. It turns your relationship into an emotionally safe place where you can relax and enjoy each other again.

Here are some of the things couples can accomplish in this Hold Me Tight® Workshop:

  • Better understanding of romantic love and keeping the spark alive. (Hint: it’s not a mystery any more!)
  • Identify those pivotal moves and moments that define your relationship.
  • Learn to be more sensitive to your (and your partner’s) emotional needs and responses.
  • Start to describe and control the negative interactions that hurt and create distance between you.
  • Begin to create and shape positive moments of reaching and responding to each other. (Those are the essential moments that create a secure bond between you.)

Join us in learning new skills and how to
start making changes in a short amount of time.

We welcome ALL couples especially:

  • Couples who want to boost & enhance their relationships.
  • Couples who are stuck in conflict or disconnection and want to feel close.
  • Couples who want to learn more about Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and the work of Dr. Sue Johnson.


I’m excited about this Hold Me Tight® Workshop and hope you are too. Will you join us?
