The Hold Me Tight weekends or workshops offer couples an intensive structure in which to explore the negative patterns in their relationship. They are run by members of our community and private providers. Check back often for current workshop offerings.


The Hold Me Tight® Workshop is designed around seven conversations based on the Hold Me Tight book by Dr. Sue Johnson. These conversations have been shown to be essential to successful relationships. Couples learn how to understand and improve their relationship. They will participate in:

  • presentations by the workshop leaders
  • private exercises and conversations with their partner
  • watching video demonstrations of other couples.

You might also be interested in Sue’s book, which offers a new way to understand and shape love relationships. The stories, ideas and exercises offered in Hold Me Tight are based on the science of love and the wisdom of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), an effective new model developed by Dr. Johnson.

Forthcoming Hold Me Tight Retreats
Hold Me Tight will be held in Melbourne on April 25-26 and in Byron Bay on August22-23. We will bring you a new flyer for these dates as soon as possible.
