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

One challenge people often face when trying to focus is task paralysis due to overwhelm and perfectionism. To combat this, I often recommend my clients the Pomodoro Technique. This involves breaking work into short, timed intervals, which can help alleviate the pressure of perfectionism and make tasks feel more manageable.

What is a superpower of people with ADHD?

One superpower that individuals with ADHD often possess is their creativity and resilience.

What do you love about working with clients?

What I love most about working with my clients is witnessing their growth and progress. Seeing them overcome challenges, develop new skills, and gain confidence in themselves is incredibly rewarding. Building strong relationships with my clients and being able to support them on their journey to success brings me immense joy and fulfillment.

Why do you refer clients to focused space?

I refer clients to Focused Space for its supportive environment and resources tailored to improve focus and productivity. It offers structured support, expert guidance, and community accountability, complementing the strategies we work on during coaching sessions.
