Physis Scotland Go Online

Physis Scotland Go Online

We are temporarily ‘moving’ onto Zoom

I am sure like us, you have been rather overwhelmed by the rapidly changing environment we find ourselves in, as the Coronvirus (COVID-19) envelops not just the UK, but across the World.  Like all organisations, we have been rapidly reviewing our operational practices.  We are holding the health of our TA community and our Physis Scotland team, at the heart of our thinking.

We wish to continue to support all our students and CPD participants and have spent a busy couple of weeks developing ideas of how we can offer training, CPDs and community activities in the safest, most easily accessible and supportive way.  We are delighted to introduce our plans and ideas to you and welcome any feedback or suggestions you have have.


Firstly, subject to our trainers, we are transferring all our course and CPD workshops online, delivered by the easy to use video conferencing platform Zoom. In recent days, many of you have probably already been invited on to other meetings and conversations using this platform.  For those of you not yet tried it, we will be providing you with the links and joining instructions, as you sign up to any of our training and CPD events.  As soon as the Coronavirus crisis has resolved and the Government allows us to get up close again, we will be hosting our training and CPD programme in person at Drumsheugh Gardens, Edinburgh.

Foundation Year Commencing September 2020

We are currently taking bookings for our September 2020 intake (see further details about this course below).  In these unprecedented times, with global and national anxiety heightened, there has never been more of a need for counsellors training in the system than right now.  We encourage you to take this opportunity and sign up for our Foundation Year.
