See what the couples who attended the workshop are saying: 

The Hold Me Tight Workshop was a transformative experience. The amazing amounts of warmth, welcome, and compassion we received from Tricia, Claudio, and all our facilitators made us feel like we had been welcomed into a “Flash-Family." Just remembering their joy helps us feel secure and loved when we need it most. As a couple, we talk a lot and were always trying to improve our relationship – but the workshop took us to deeper places together than we could go to on our own. We have both survived emotional abuse and neglect in our childhood, and this workshop helped both of us be healing agents for each other by being emotionally present. We felt so close – like we were the only two people in the world! – yet, at the same time, we felt deeply connected to the others sharing our experience in the workshop as well. This workshop took us to a new place in our relationship, and we are better for it.

Claudio and Tricia are the perfect team to lead this workshop -- they're warm, knowledgeable, and so, so kind. I can't think of a better way to spend a weekend than having these meaningful, marriage-changing conversations with my partner.

About the Workshop

We want to let you know about a virtual Couples Workshop on October 15 and 16 facilitated by Claudio Silva, LMFT and Tricia Kim Walsh, LMFT, who are both Certified Emotionally Focused Therapists. Dr Sue Johnson developed the Hold Me Tight® program based on Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and her bestselling book, Hold Me Tight®, Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love. The price of this workshop will be $750 per couple.

By attending this online Hold Me Tight workshop, you will discover and experience a new way of connecting with your partner. The following are some of the new ways of how to express love you will learn in this workshop: 

1) Learn how to be vulnerable and express your emotions with clarity without attacking or criticizing your partner. 

2) Understand your negative interactions, how they become negative cycle patterns and how to get out of them. 

3) Become more A.R.E., "accessible, responsive and emotionally engaged" with one another. 5) Learn how to apologize, forgive and repair past injuries. 

4) Take emotional risks through honesty and vulnerability. 

5) Increase your emotional, physical and sexual closeness. 

During this pandemic, take the time to enroll in this convenient virtual workshop that will help you 1) deepen your love and connection, 2) develop new skills to recognize the cycle and patterns that harm your relationship and keep you separate and apart, and 3) begin to confidently highlight the strengths of your relationship and build on the love that already exists
