“Romantic love is all about attachment and emotional bonding. It is all about our wired-in need to have someone to depend on, a loved one who can offer reliable emotional connection and comfort. Love is not the icing on the cake of life. It is a basic primary need, like oxygen or water. Once we understand and accept this, we can more easily get to the heart of relationship problems.”

- Dr. Sue Johnson, PhD - Founder of Emotionally Focused Therapy

“A deep sense of love and belonging is an irreducible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong. When those needs are not met, we don’t function as we were meant to. We break. We fall apart. We numb. We ache. We hurt others. We get sick.”

- Brené Brown

Why It Works

Research shows that the primary reason why marriages fail is a lack of positive emotional responsiveness and affection. As the years go by those “knowing” smiles go away. Gone also are the gentle touches or spontaneous hugs. Over time the spark in the relationship often dies out. We are naturally wired for connection and bonding with our partner. When our love connections are not secure, we hurt.

The goal of the Hold Me Tight seminar is to help couples repair, enhance, and continually grow the connection in their love relationship. No matter the stage of your relationship, married or not, this workshop will teach you and your partner how to connect emotionally to create the relationship of your dreams.
