Hold Me Tight: Conversations for Connection
With Maggie O'Shea & Linda Murrow

Renew your relationship this Spring with a weekend workshop for couples at the historic Abbotsford Convent, Melbourne.

Whether your relationship is in great shape, in serious trouble, or anywhere in between, Hold me Tight® is a practical and inspiring workshop developed by Dr Susan Johnson*. Internationally recognised as an effective, evidence-based model for helping couples change their relationship dance, this workshop will assist you in creating a secure, loving bond.  

After each presentation you & your partner will practice seven key conversations designed to increase safety, closeness and connection. You can choose to do this privately or with the skilled support of a facilitator.  There is no expectation to share your private relationship with the larger group.

Drawing from attachment theory and the neuroscience of love, we will help you navigate common relationship challenges.  You will learn:

  • Where and how couples get stuck in constricting patterns of interaction
  • How to communicate in new ways that create safety and heal old hurts
  • How to build greater trust, closeness and intimacy
