 Try this :- 

namespace NameSpace\Module\Block;

    class FeaturedCategories extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template

     protected $categoryCollectionFactory;

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Backend\Block\Template\Context $context,
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Category\CollectionFactory $categoryCollectionFactory,
        array $data = []
    ) {
        $this->categoryCollectionFactory = $categoryCollectionFactory;
        parent::__construct($context, $data);

    public function getFeaturedCategories()
        $collection = $this->categoryCollectionFactory->create();
            ->addAttributeToFilter('show_category', '1');

        return $collection;
