What do you recommend to help clients focus on their work?

Beginning is often the hardest part. If you're having a hard time getting started, it may be because you don't have a clear idea of exactly what you need to do, and so feel overwhelmed by *gestures vaguely* everything. I recommend my clients begin by outlining what they need to do, and starting with one small piece of it. When you get into the groove, you may find it's easier to keep going.

What is the superpower of ADHD?

I've long felt that ADHD is not a disability but just a different perspective. Many of my ADHD friends are smart, funny, creative people. It's the formulaic, prescriptive working systems we've created that have failed them, not the other way around. ADHD folks have unique perspectives and ways of approaching problems that can be immensely valuable.

What do clients say about working with you?

"Working with Iain was a transformative experience for me. From our first session, Iain's warm smile and genuine laughter made me feel immediately comfortable, creating a space where I felt welcomed and accepted. His energy is infectious, and his attentive listening and thoughtful clarifications always made me feel understood.

Iain has an incredible ability to help organize thoughts across personal, professional, and social spheres, highlighting their interconnections in ways I hadn't considered. His guidance through homework and thought exercises opened my eyes to my strengths and values, providing a structured approach to mapping out my "true north."

Iain was instrumental in helping me articulate my goals and delve deeper into understanding my priorities. What I appreciate most is that Iain never simply handed me the answers but empowered me to discover them myself, guiding me to my own truths with advice tailored to my journey.

I recommend Iain to anyone looking to gain clarity and direction in their life. His coaching fosters self-discovery and personal growth."

Why do you refer clients to focused space?

The power of focused working time and community can be transformative and really help folks get work done!
