Start of the New Academic Year Autumn 2020

Two Fionas

Start of the New Academic Year Autumn 2020

Hot Off the Press

We are super proud and grateful to all of our students, tutors, supervisors and the wider team at Physis Scotland.  Despite the challenges that have impacted on all of us, during the current health crisis, the Physis Scotland community continues to thrive and grow. We had such a positive ending with our students in July and we are so excited for the start of the new Academic Year.

The Transactional Analyst Magazine

Huge congratulations to our core tutor Ronen Stilman PTSTA, and students  Begonya Garcia, Russ Bijum and James Kelly, who have all recently had articles published in The Transactional Analyst magazine. Fantastic.

Foundation Year commencing September 2020

We are overwhelmed and delighted by the number of applications for The Foundation Certificate in Transactional Analysis commencing this month.  We have had so many applications, that we are thrilled to be facilitating two cohorts.  We have 29 students successfully completed the application process and possibly a 30th registered by the end of this week. The feedback from those applying, suggests that COVID-19 is causing individuals to take a look at their careers, consider their values and take a step forward down a new path.

Diploma in Counselling Supervision commencing October 2020

Applications have been keeping us busy over the last few weeks and this course is now almost full.  Details below if you might be interested in joining us…. but don’t hesitate as the applications close 25th September.

New Beginnings

As we approach a new academic year, Fiona Cook, in our recent blog post, ponders how tricky it can often be staying in the moment, rather than worrying about the road ahead. Fiona talks about the courage it takes to embark on something new and encourages us to talk about how we feel, embracing the here and now together.
