"Hold me Tight” Couples Workshop

Tauranga – 1 to 3 November 2019

This weekend workshop teaches partners to become more empathetic, trusting and open with each other and to more easily handle day-to-day stress and problems. It is educational, rather than therapy or counselling.

Conversations for Connection

A Relationship Workshop for Couples

This workshop is helpful for couples who are distressed; and also for couples who want to feel closer and more connected. Single or separated people who would like to understand their relationship patterns are also welcome to come along to a workshop.

You and your partner get space and privacy to work through the conversations away from the group.

You will not have to share with the group – this is an education workshop for couples; not a therapy group; and Yve & Debbie are very safe facilitators.

You will find that watching videos of couples talking; before you have your own private conversations with your partner, is really helpful and encouraging!

Debbie is based in Tauranga. You can read more about her at optionscounselling.co.nz
Yve is based in Papamoa. You can read more about her at yvegold.co.nz

Debbie and Yve are experienced couples’ therapists & trainers. They are happy to discuss the workshop with you if you would like more information.

The Conversations for Connection workshop is based on ‘Hold Me Tight’™ by Sue Johnson, the developer of Emotionally Focused Therapy. Workshop participants will receive written information and a copy of the book ‘Hold Me Tight’.
