Enjoying loving connection with our partner is a vital need for all couples. We need an accessible and responsive partner, and we do best when we can depend on our partner for nurturing, protection and fun. We all want a positive answer to the key questions in love relationships: Are you there for me? Do I matter to you? Am I enough?

Considerable work has been done on how to help couples continue to enjoy this loving connection throughout their relationship. Sue Johnson is a pioneer in this field and we are using the material from her bestselling book ‘Hold Me Tight – Conversations for Connection’.

The course is suitable for any couple who have been married (or in a committed relationship) for over 2 years. It runs over seven Monday evenings, there is no charge but for couples who are able to we recommend donations of £140 per couple (subsidised rate) or £250 (full cost) to help us cover costs. The next course starts on Monday 13th May 2019.
