INVEST IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP

Building and maintaining strong relationships is not an easy task. We all begin a relationship with passion, intimacy, trust, security and the intention to always prioritize the feelings of our partners. Somewhere along the way, however, life happens. We find ourselves sharing a life with a partner we may see less and less of as time goes on. We’re  living different experiences as parents, in our careers, within our communities. Life happens to each of us in very different ways. Sometimes those differences can cause a rift in your relationship leaving you to wonder if even worth saving? Who is this person I married? Why do I not feel valued? Do they even see how hard I am trying? 

 

These questions and feelings of being undervalued and misunderstood can lead to the development of toxic repetitive cycles that block you from making any meaningful progress. Many times couples will sit down and try to talk about their issues with the very best of intentions but insecure thoughts patterns disrupt these conversations and can leave both partners feeling more disconnected than before they started. Emotionally Focused Therapy works on breaking those repetitive cycles.

Hold Me Tight Workshops were designed to help couples in all stages of their relationship learn how to:

COMMUNICATE

Communicate with one another in a way that encourages more intimate connections and deeper understandings.

BUILD TRUST AND STRENGTHEN BONDS

Build Trust and Strengthen Bonds by reducing points of conflict and eliminating the misunderstanding that causes emotional distancing.

RELIGHT THE SPARK

Relight the Spark you both felt in the beginning of your relationship through more secure and intimate interactions.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT HOLD ME TIGHT HOUSTON

“I feel so grateful my partner and I were a part of the Hold Me Tight Retreat! I felt that I was able to connect with my partner in ways I thought would not have been possible in a 2-day period. Though there were moments it got tough in the “swamp” my partner and I felt a sense of relief and support. I believe and hope that the information, tools, and experiences my partner and I shared this weekend has provided us with hope and momentum to repair our hurts, catch / be aware of our “dumb & dumber” cycle or dance, and open our hearts to one another. Truly grateful and would recommend to couples who feel stuck or desire to understand each other more fully.”

WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT HOLD ME TIGHT?

Hold Me Tight™ is an educational program based on the therapy model and practice of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT). EFT is an empirically tested model of couple’s therapy that has shown excellent outcomes with many different kinds of couples. Numerous clinical research studies show that 70-75% of couples in EFT therapy move from distress into recovery. About 90% show significant improvements and evidence shows that these positive effects last over time. In the Hold Me Tight™ program couples are taught and have the opportunity to learn and practice the key change conversations which make EFT as a therapy so successful. Learn more about EFT at ICEEFT and its developer Dr. Sue Johnson.

The Hold Me Tight™ program is based on 25 years of research in which couples taught the creator of Hold Me Tight™, Dr. Sue Johnson, about patterns where couples get stuck in communication and how each person’s move in their communication dance exacerbates the other person’s stance leaving both partner’s frustrated and stuck.
