Australian EFT Trainer Clare Rosoman's Book on Recovery From Relationship Loss


"This is a beautifully written book that will touch your heart and lead you through the pain of loss to a new sense of balance and peace – everyone should read it."

Sue Johnson, (Ed.D.), Founder of Emotionally Focused Therapy & Director of the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT)

About the book

By viewing romantic love as an attachment bond, Clare Rosoman incorporates emotionally focused therapy (EFT) and attachment theory to provide evidence-based tools in navigating close relationships and managing the pain of relationship loss. 

Addressing all forms of relationships, including family and friendship losses, LGBTQ+ couples, and references to cultural humility, this accessible and empathetic guide is written for both therapists and their clients to help them learn from their experiences and build the ability to be a resource for themselves. It is essential reading for EFT therapists as well as couple, marriage, and family therapists.

Hold Me Tight ® Workshops for Couples and Relationships

The Hold Me Tight® Workshop was developed by Dr. Sue Johnson and is designed around seven conversations from the book Hold Me Tight, all of which have been shown to be essential to successful relationships.  Hold Me Tight workshops are intensive workshops for couples, often conducted over a weekend. You will learn how to understand and improve your relationship through presentations by the workshop leaders, private exercises and conversations with your partner and by watching video demonstrations of other couples. They are a wonderful way to benefit from the EFT model. Hold Me Tight workshops happen in a variety of locations in Australia.
