About Hold Me Tight Weekends

Who is this for?
This retreat would benefit anyone who wants to enhance, protect & strengthen their relationship with their partner.

For most of us, daily life involves a constant juggle of the demands of family needs, work tasks, bosses, co-workers, in-laws, extracurricular activities, last minute schedule changes, unexpected problem solving and everything else that goes into running a household.

The busyness of it all usually consumes so much effort and energy that it makes it almost impossible to invest high quality time and attention in tending to the relationships that matter to us most -and that have the greatest impact on our own personal sense of happiness and wellbeing.


If your relationship is going really well, this weekend is time to step away from the demands of your daily life to recharge & safeguard your connection to each other, helping you to be even more protected from anything life may throw at you down the road.

If things have been under stress lately, this weekend can help smooth away any tensions that have been building and help the two of you to get back on the same page together.

If it feels like you have been disconnected or in conflict for a long time, then think of this weekend as a powerful opportunity to hit the reset button. These two days can be the start of new chapter as you heal and rebuild the life you want to have together.

All couples are welcome including all variations of marital status, race, faith or sexual orientation.

What is the Hold Me Tight model?
Hold me Tight Retreats are based on Dr. Sue Johnson’s book, Hold Me Tight and on Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which has 30 years of research proving its effectiveness in creating lasting change in couples’ relationships.

Hold Me Tight offers a revolutionary new way to see and shape love relationships. The stories, new ideas and exercises offered in Hold Me Tight are based on the new science of love and the wisdom of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), an effective new model developed by Dr. Johnson.
EFT is a short-term, structured approach to marital and couples therapy. Empirical research has supported the effectiveness of EFT, showing that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and about 90% show significant improvements (the best results of any couple therapy) and evidence shows that these positive effects last over time. Currently EFT is being used with diverse couples from various cultures around the world in private practice, university training centers and hospital clinics.
