Hi, Peter,

I haven't had the opportunity to thank you for your help. You cannot imagine how much this first "out" training is important for us! We are ooking forward to learn from your large experience.
As for the training per se, we are preparing concrete questions that will be helpful, I think, in particular, for the team of our Center. Unfortunately, only one of the two will finally be able to make it. We hope that this will be very interesting and strengthening! I will arrange with Anton how to send your book ASAP.
Thanks once more and let's keep in touch!

Many thanks Peter.

I have already had 4 wonderful sessions with amazing results. One with a cousin who has been in and out of Jail for many years, 2 with colleagues and one with a friend.

Hello Peter,
always when I look at you - I am touched by admiration and gratitude. You filled my heart and the one of my people in Budapest with belief. We will make it - in a difficult world. This emotion you raised in us - more than anyone else.
Only Insoo did the same for me - some years ago.
Would like to start a SOLBudapest maybe this february.
If you have any contacts - would be great. Asked Katalin and Matthias as well... Let us see whether it works.
Deep bows

Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
