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 workshop 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.
