Hold Me Tight Course for Couples

Toilet suitable for wheelchair users
Wheelchair accessibile venue

We all want to enjoy a loving connection with our partner but many of us struggle to keep love and closeness going. Sometimes we can get caught up in negative patterns which leave both partners feeling alone and sad or angry. Considerable work has been done on how to help couples who feel stuck fund their way back to love and connection. Dr Sue Johnson is a pioneer in this field and has developed a Hold Me Tight® course which we are using. This material is based on the bestselling book ‘Hold Me Tight – Conversations for Connection’.

The course uses a mixture of presentations by trained facilitators, video clips of how this approach works and exercises that are designed for you to work through individually as a couple. Emotionally Focused couples therapists help run the course and are available for help and support during the sessions. The course is suitable for any couple who have or in a committed relationship for over 2 years. It runs over seven evenings, and there is a recommended donation of £180 per couple to help us cover costs. If you cannot pay the full amount we simply ask that people pay an amount they can afford.
