Melissa Chureau is a purpose and mindset coach, mindfulness teacher, lawyer, and podcaster. She uses deep inquiry, mindfulness, and principles of somatics to move beyond imposterism and perfectionism to help her clients create space in the mind, and uncover their true, whole, integrated selves.
As a lawyer for 20 years, she has witnessed many who work and live out of alignment with their values and purpose—often because they don’t know their worth, regardless of their successes. Many feel like imposters waiting to get exposed, and afraid that who they really are isn’t enough.
As a person with over 22 years in recovery from alcohol use disorder and a life-long ADHD-er, Melissa is all too familiar with what the experience of imposterism can do. After years of living behind the mask of imposterism, she now lives authentically and regularly shares her story to destigmatize both alcohol use disorder and ADHD. She leads meditation and mindfulness practices, leads workshops on overcoming imposterism and destigmatizing addiction and neurodivergence, offering hope and resilience tools to everyone who might want them.
In this episode we will explore:
