Emotionally Focused Therapy and Hold Me Tight Workshops

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a groundbreaking approach to couples therapy that focuses on understanding and addressing the emotional needs of couples.

Developed by renowned researcher and expert Dr. Sue Johnson, EFT is grounded in the belief that relationships are founded on emotional connection, and when couples can express their feelings and needs, they can foster a stronger bond.

The Hold Me Tight Workshop serves as a relationship enrichment program, aiding couples in strengthening their intimacy and emotional connection. Additionally, it empowers them to comprehend the negative patterns that instigate conflict, and rejuvenates their relationship.

The workshop format includes:

  • Facilitated conversations
  • Video presentations
  • Guided exercises
  • One-on-one discussions led by experienced therapists from their private practice

The workshop is limited to a maximum of eight couples.

EFT forms the basis for Hold Me Tight workshops, crafted to steer couples through seven life-altering conversations that pave the way for enduring love. These conversations enable couples to:

  • Recognize and overcome the damaging cycles in their relationship
  • Understand the underlying causes of their issues
  • Learn to move beyond initial reactions to truly comprehend what their partner is trying to communicate.

The Science Behind EFT

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) is an evidence-based approach that has been proven highly effective in creating greater bonding between partners. With a success rate of 70% of couples experiencing a shift from distress to peace, and 90% of couples significantly benefiting from the therapy, EFT is a powerful tool for relationship improvement.

The Hold Me Tight Workshop is designed to assist couples in mending their relationships through physical intimacy repair, by imparting improved communication skills and a greater understanding of each other’s emotional needs.

EFT is supported by over 100 studies demonstrating its efficacy in:

  • Reducing cortisol levels
  • Assisting in emotional regulation
  • Addressing negative emotions and traumatic memories to help couples develop behaviors that deepen their connection.

Hold Me Tight is a structured conversation designed to help couples build and maintain a secure emotional bond, which serves as a strong relationship anchor.

  2. Finding the Raw Spots
  3. Revisiting a Rocky Moment
  4. Hold Me Tight
  5. Forgiving Injuries

By engaging in these conversations, couples can achieve lasting change, leading to deeper connections and a lifetime of love and fulfillment as their behaviors deepen.
