Hold Me Tight® 
a Workshop for  Couples

Hold Me Tight® by Dr. Sue Johnson

Fall 2023 Dates are Coming Soon!

Love is a journey filled with joy, growth, and challenges. As couples navigate the complexities of their shared lives, they may encounter difficulties in communication, unresolved conflicts, or a gradual erosion of emotional connection. During such times, seeking guided help through one of our Hold Me Tight® workshops for couples can be an effective and transformative way to strengthen and revitalize the relationship. Let’s explore the numerous benefits that couples can experience by participating in a marriage counseling workshop.


  1. Expert Guidance and Support:  Joining one of our Hold Me Tight® workshops provides couples with access to our experienced and trained EFT therapists who specialize in relationship dynamics. These experts guide couples through various exercises, discussions, and experiences that address common issues and promote healthy relationship skills. Our expertise helps couples gain insights, discover new perspectives, and develop strategies to overcome challenges.

  2. Enhanced Communication:  Effective communication is the cornerstone of a successful marriage or relationship. Our workshops offer couples a safe space to improve their communication skills by providing structured activities and guidance. Through interactive exercises and learning, couples can privately learn to express their needs, actively listen, and understand each other’s perspectives. By enhancing communication, couples can strengthen their emotional bond and resolve conflicts more effectively.

  3. Strengthened Connection:  Hold Me Tight® workshops focus on deepening the emotional connection between partners, using the knowledge we have learned from the research supporting Emotionally Focused Therapy. Through various experiential activities, couples can rediscover their love, affection, and appreciation for each other. Workshops encourage vulnerability, emotional expression, and the exploration of shared values and goals. This renewed sense of connection fosters intimacy and a deeper understanding of one another.

  4. Proactive Approach to Relationship Health:  Participating in a marriage counseling workshop demonstrates a proactive commitment to the health and longevity of the relationship. Rather than waiting until problems become overwhelming, couples engage in preventive measures to strengthen their bond. By investing time and effort in a workshop, couples prioritize their relationship and show a willingness to grow and evolve together.

  5. Practical Tools and Strategies:  Our Hold Me Tight® workshops equip couples with practical tools and strategies they can implement in their everyday lives. From conflict resolution techniques to effective communication exercises, couples gain valuable resources to navigate challenges long after the workshop concludes. These tools provide ongoing support and guidance, allowing couples to sustain the positive changes made during the workshop.


A marriage counseling workshop can be a transformative experience for couples seeking to revitalize and strengthen their relationship. Through our expert guidance, enhanced communication, strengthened connection, learning from others, and the acquisition of practical tools, couples can overcome challenges, deepen their emotional bond, and create a fulfilling and lasting partnership. By investing in a Hold Me Tight® workshop with The Center for Living Balance, couples take a proactive step towards building a healthier, happier, and more resilient relationship.
