Course structure & format
The Flow Coach Qualification (FCQ) course is an online course with all modules being taught and delivered via the Teachable platform. This allows people from all over the world to access the programme.
The structure is flexible meaning that it can fit around existing work and commitments.
There are a total of 12 modules that make up the course with the first 3 being our existing 'standard' courses and forming the foundation of the qualification. Anyone wishing to take this qualification should first complete 3 of these standard courses as follows;
Introduction to Flow: The keys to a whole new world filled with learning, creativity, enjoyment & growth (mandatory)
Attention and Flow: Effortful, effortless and the role of mindfulness (mandatory)
Mental Health: Flourishing and well-being through sport and physical activity (choice)
Strengths and Flow: Identifying, spotting and using strengths to foster flow (choice)
Once these courses have been completed you can enrol for the main course with a further 9 modules that cover learning, experience and reflection. Each of these modules will be released on a weekly basis with the first being available as soon as you register.
You can take as much time as you wish to complete the course with the minimum time being 9-weeks.
As part of the course programme you will be encouraged to embark on a journey of personal discovery and to challenge your own learning by developing new interests that allow you to transfer skills from an activity in which you have already become proficient. That way you will increase your own propensity to experience flow, which is essential if you are to help others 'find flow'.
You will also learn about the '9 Habits of a Flow Coach' and how to use them personally and with those whom you coach. The 9 habits are combined with the 'Learn, Enjoy, Flow & Grow' coaching method to give you all the tools required for a 'Transformational Flow Coaching' approach.
More information about these 9 modules will be available soon. In the meantime anyone who is interested in taking the Flow Coach Qualification (FCQ) should complete the required foundation modules.
Please note that anyone who previously did our online workshops can use these as foundation credits.

As part of your Flow psychology education there are three important books/texts that you should read which are described here and pictured below. All three of these texts will be utilised throughout the training journey.
Learn, Enjoy, Flow & Grow: Using the principles of positive psychology to help find passion and meaning in life was published in October 2020 and sets out the 'LEFG coaching method'. It is widely available for purchase in paperback and ebook formats.
Transformational Flow Coaching introduces a new model and approach to coaching. This short ebook is available in Kindle (Amazon) and ePub (Apple, Kobo, Nook) versions..
9 Habits of a Flow Coach: Combining positive psychology and coaching to increase well-being will be published on the 1st of June 2021. This book will really bring the LEFG coaching to life both personally and for those that you coach. It can be pre-ordered now on Amazon.
In addition to our foundation courses and the books noted above you can also develop and deepen your knowledge of flow & mindfulness via our Blog and through our Documents & Tools section with the latter requiring site registration and being added to our mailing list.
