Couples from all walks of life can benefit from therapy. 

Relationship counseling gets a bad rep. Most people believe it's the last option before breaking up or divorcing. 

But even happy and healthy couples can learn from these sessions. 

Unfortunately, couples therapy is costly. 

The average 1-hour session ranges from $150-500 after health insurance. If it’s even accepted. 

And, if you need months of couples therapy, you might need to resort to a more accessible option. 

There are hundreds of effective, low-cost substitutes available. 

The best part? 

You can practice them in the comfort of your own home.

If you're trying to nourish your relationship, the practices below can help. Here are some ways to master at-home couples therapy.

How to Master At-Home Couples Therapy

1. Harness the power of rituals

As a couple, you probably already have a ritual or two. 

It could be serving the other their coffee in the morning. Or watching an episode of your favorite series at night. 

These small gestures play a huge part in strengthening your relationship. 

Next time you pour them a cup of coffee, compliment them. Or, when you sit down for dinner, ask them about their day.

Give them a quick back massage when they're at their desk working.

Chat while you're eating. Ask them about their day. 

Make the little deeds count.

2. Invest in your quality time.

Get off your phone an hour before bed and reconnect with your partner.

Go to your favorite restaurant and order your favorite meal.

Dance around the living room like no one's watching.

Share stories. 

Play board games.

Enjoy a laugh.

The possibilities are endless!
