“Observer’s Lookout! is a fantastic resource for anyone who is interested in helping others be the best version of themselves. Peter’s book draws on his extraordinary knowledge and experience of two of the most powerful approaches to change going around – Ericksonian therapies and ontological coaching. Just like his coaching, there is an ease and power that leaps from the page which act as a reminder that everything we need to effectively deal with challenges is already within us. Peter provides engaging stories to illustrate important principles that any coach, counsellor, teacher, or parent would benefit from.”
