One Day Workshop

One Day Workshop

Sunday, 2 April 2017.

Our group workshop is based on material from the EFT program Hold Me Tight® and techniques from Gottman Methods Couple Therapy. This unique workshop is perfectly suited for couples who have limited time, but would like to work on improving their relationship.

Hold Me Tight® is an educational and experiential workshop suitable for all types of couples, in every phase of their relationship. It is designed to help couples understand their relationship and develop better communication.

As a group we will listen to presentations from the facilitator as well as watch videos of Dr. Sue Johnson (Founder of EFT) working with other couples as they undergo a similar process. During class you and your partner will engage privately in various exercises designed to bring you closer and enhance your connection.

During the workshop you and your partner will learn how to:

  • Recognize patterns that lead to conflict
  • Break out of cycles that cause pain, frustration, and loneliness
  • Make sense of your emotional needs and those of your partner
  • Communicate more effectively
  • Develop a method for processing arguments and past hurts
