Hold Me Tight®
When some one "Holds You Tight" it gives you a secure & safe place to step out of yourself and into a happier, healthier relationship. 
Come to a HMT weekend to create an amazing love affair with your partner.

Are you content in your relationship yet wonder if you could ask for more?
Do you ask "where did our love go"?
Does it seem like you have the same arguments or challenges over and over again?

Hold Me Tight is a groundbreaking and remarkably successful relationship enrichment program. It creates stronger, more secure relationships by:
  • Identifying your stuck patterns of behavior
  • Understanding the emotions that drive your actions
  • Developing awareness of your partners responses
  • Slowing down your actions to have more choices
Hold Me Tight is a journey that supports you through seven conversations designed to give you the experience of another way and the practices that will enhance your relationship. HMT teaches you a researched, validated process that enhances your relationship. 

The HMT program was created by Dr. Sue Johnson, the award winning founder of Emotionally Focused Therapy(EFT) and author of the books Hold Me Tight & Love Sense

“no one can dance with a partner and not touch each other’s raw spots. We must know what these raw spots are and be able to speak about them in a way that pulls our partner closer to us.”
