Spring 2019 News and Courses from Physis Scotland

Spring Thoughts
‘A sense of…’

We are writing this on a sunny March day, with daffodils in full bloom, reflecting on a busy, exciting and successful 3 months for Physis Scotland. As announced recently we are delighted to have moved into our new training facilities at 22 Drumsheugh Gardens, Edinburgh. We have created warm, inviting spaces to host our TA Foundation, Diploma and CPD Courses and feedback from our students and trainers has been fantastic.

Of course, transition and change present many challenges for all involved and Fiona Cook shared our experiences of what transformation has meant to us in the Blog ‘A Sense of…’ For example, we have had such a ‘Sense of Achievement’ and feel we have created a ‘Sense of Belonging, Security and Continuity’ for our trainees, colleagues and friends.

Enjoy our story in Fiona’s Blog

As we step into Spring, we would like to provide a small profile of our courses, in the coming months which are:

S – Stimulating
P – Provocative in a good way
R – Realistic
I – Innovative
N – Nurturing
G – Growing opportunities

My Therapeutic Journey

At Physis Scotland, we are proud to have the support of skilled trainers to deliver our CPD programme. Many of us come into this field with different backgrounds and experiences. Paul Redpath, PTSTA was our December guest blogger and shared his ‘Therapeutic Journey’. His parents’ unhappy marriage impacted on his own personal relationships, driving him to ask questions of himself.

You can read Pauls’s story on our blog.

We do hope you find a course or workshop that will benefit your practice and learning needs. Please suggest any topic areas that you think we could explore in future years for CPD training, or any other feedback, we would love to hear from you. Contact us by email or mobile 07927 557217.
