Hi! I’m Coach Alyssa Shaw. You may also know me as Missleadingly ADHD. I’m so happy you’re here!


Are you interested in being coached but not quite sure what that even means?

Let me just start off by telling you my favourite word that represents the coach and client relationship:


This word is so special to me because it represents infinite trust, no judgment, harmony, and most of all, the feeling that you are not alone.

With camaraderie as our guide, we will go on a journey and develop tools, skills and importantly, a healthy self-talk so that you are able to move forward with confidence and pursue your hopes and dreams. Yes, that sounds cheesy but it is so true!

Common obstacles that I see with my clients:

  • Procrastination
  • Executive Function Issues
    • Planning
    • Organization
    • Time Management
    • Task Initiation
    • Working Memory
    • Metacognition (being aware of what you know and using that information to help you)
    • Self-control
    • Attention
    • Perseverance
  • Relationships
  • Emotional flooding/overwhelm
  • Lack of self-awareness
    • Needs
    • Boundaries
    • Values
    • Wants
    • Strengths

Do these sound familiar to you? I would love to have a discussion with you to see if we can understand what all these areas are like for you and if a coaching partnership could be the right fit! The sessions will be held in-person in Montreal or via Skype.
