Welcome to our Couple's Communication Program (Hold Me Tight) page! I am Kristal Jones, President for Toronto Beyond The Blue. As a Toronto Police spouse, I understand firsthand the challenges we face. I am truly thrilled you and your partner have taken these next steps to deepen your connection and invest in your relationship. 

Since our inception, we have supported 38 TPS couples, just like you. The feedback we have received from couples upon completion of the program has been incredible and accordingly we will continue to provide this valued retreat to our couples in need.


Have a look around this page and then let's connect. I am happy to guide you and your loved one through the process from intake to the completion of TBTB's Couples Communication Program. 

What is Hold Me Tight?

Based off the principles of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Sue Johnson's novel Hold Me Tight, TBTB has designed a 3 night 4 day program for couples to engage in and understand the seven conversations that capture the defining moments in a love relationship and how to shape these moments to create a secure and lasting bond.


TBTB couples will be led by 2 main EFT trained therapists in a group setting learning the theory behind Hold Me Tight. Then, couples will breakout into private breakout sessions to practice the and work through couple's exercises with the guide of roving therapists. 

A safe environment is created where couples can say as little or as much as they want during the group setting. There is no pressure to share. During the breakout sessions, couples will have lots of one-one time to have private conversations. 

This program offers a safe environment to jump start your journey and couple's therapy.
