We all experience conflict. The most important act in addressing it is usually taking the first step. At A Single Step, we help couples learn from their conflict, to build more healthy and happy relationships.

Our coaching creates a safe, supportive container for both parties to identify the stories and beliefs that fuel their conflict, and reconstruct patterns of behaviour, to create a deeper, more connected relationship.

As Director and Coach, Chris Pye brings together qualifications, experience and expertise in both Counselling and Coaching. Drawing on an eclectic range of influences, Chris offers his clients the best of both worlds. 

Everything we do at A Single Step is informed by our core values of Responsibility, Conversation and Action. Check out our full vision, mission and values
