Frequently asked questions

How long does the course take? The course will take between five and ten hours to complete depending on how much you follow the links to the recommended further reading of articles, books and web pages, viewing of YouTube videos and Ted Talks, and listening to Podcast episodes.

Do I need to purchase a copy of Learn, Enjoy, Flow and Grow to take this course? No, there is no need to purchase a copy of the book as the content of the lessons combined with the links to freely accessed information will provide a good level of knowledge about the subject. However, should you wish to purchase a copy in either print, ebook or audio then it will certainly enhance and build on the information presented.

Does it matter if I buy the physical book or the ebook? Both print and ebook versions of the book are exactly the same. The only difference is that the ePub version has a hyperlinked index whereas the MOBI version (Amazon Kindle) does not. If you purchase the ePub version directly from the Derek Tate Coaching online store it can be used with any eReader (Amazon Kindle, Apple, Kobo, Nook etc.).

Do you provide transcripts for the video presentations? For video presentations without power point slides a transcript is provided. For all screencasts (video presentation of the power point slides) there is no transcript however, the slides are made available for download as a reminder of the material covered.

Do you run any interactive Zoom discussions? Yes, I run live workshops and masterclasses via Zoom on selected dates. More info available on

How much do the Zoom events cost? The workshops and masterclasses cost 60€ per event with early bird price at 50€.

Is this course recognised as Continued Professional Development (CPD)? No, these courses are not officially recognised for CPD but the Parallel Dreams Coaching Academy is a registered provider with The CPD Accreditation Group number: 778255. As such many employers and National Governing Bodies (NGB) of sport may recognise these courses for external CPD credit. You can use your course certificate as evidence of completing the course.

What if I want to become a coach or practitioner in positive psychology, mental health etc.? I would recommend that you initially complete my other two courses - Attention & Flow and Mental Health and that you join me for one of my live workshops or masterclasses. For specific courses that lead to practitioner or coaching certification have a look at 'Your Journey' on my Derek Tate Coaching website.
