For Your Relationship Toolbox – Hold Me Tight by Dr. Sue Johnson

The books arrived!

And, we’re excited about gifting this extraordinary relationship tool to our scheduled clients during the month of May.

We’re doing this because we understand that when someone you love is stressed or overwhelmed, you want to help and may not know how.

A well-intentioned word or attempt to fix the problem can be misunderstood and then …
it’s downhill from there. If you and your partner get caught in a negative cycle, the argument can go on for hours….sometimes days. Its a painful way to live.

Enter, Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love, Hold Me Tight by Dr. Sue Johnsona wonderful book that helps couples understand their negative cycle. It brings insight and logic to the world of emotions and supports your work with us.

Hold Me Tight lets you know you don’t need conflict management skills to improve your relationship. You don’t have to explore early childhood memories and there’s no need for expensive gifts or monumental acts.

Hold Me Tight helps you understand that you and your partner are emotionally attached and you simply need to be open, attuned and responsive with each other. (Note: Simple is difficult.)

When you and your partner are open, attuned and responsive, there’s a connection and everything changes. That’s when you can step out of the cycle together and Life (With a capital L!!) feels good again.

Hold Me Tight is an easy read and a valuable addition to your relationship toolbox.

If you’d like to call directly, Donna, our new Scheduling Coordinator (704-319-5593) will be happy to help set your appointment(s) OR you can schedule online at your convenience. Either way, we look forward to seeing you in May!

As always, we want to extend a special Thank You to all our loyal clients, family and friends and a big, warm welcome to those joining us for the first time.

We’re delighted and grateful to have you in our circle.
