Hold Me Tight® Group for Couples invites both newly-married or long-time partners to learn how to address stuck patterns, make sense of your partner’s inner world, and deepen connections to feel safe and loved.

Each week, we will watch video examples of other couples and see how they learned to improve communication and strengthen their relationship. Discover how to increase your experiences of emotional responsiveness, develop a sense of safety and closeness, and practice communication skills through guided, private exercises with your partner. All experiential work is done privately between partners, followed by group discussion. No one is required to share personal experiences with the group.

You’ll learn how to:

•  Understand why you get stuck in recurring patterns of conflict – and how to break them
•  Help your partner understand what you really need to feel safe and loved
•  Repair and forgive emotional injuries
•  Feel more accepted and connected
•  Deepen your emotional and physical connection

Based on the Hold Me Tight book, which you can order in advance to use later on as a reference as you practice and reinforce what you’ve learned.

Please note, however, that EFT is not appropriate for situations where ongoing affairs, abuse or substance addictions exist.
