My name is Kirsty Melmed and I am in my thirties, living in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town.
My passion is empowering others to discover who they are and what they want from life.
I try to live my own life by being as authentic as possible. This includes doing work that I am passionate about, going to yoga every week, attending workshops on topics I am interested in, always learning and reading to satisfy my never-ending curiosity, eating natural healthy food, spending quality time with my friends and family, adventuring with my boyfriend and taking my sausage dog, Hamlet, for walks somewhere beautiful.
My twenties were spent travelling the world - I have been to 31 countries and lived in London, Corfu, Rome and Lyon!
After a lot of fun and a whole bunch of learning, my thirties are about growing my business and pursuing my mission: to empower others to #LiveLifeAuthentically .
Why Did I Become a Coach?
My curiosity in self-development was piqued in high school when I attended a workshop on how to be real. This changed my life and I knew that I wanted to do the same for others. I completed a degree in Psychological Counselling and embarked on an 8 year journey of travel and learning in Europe. During this time I honed my people skills, developed my intuition and learnt a lot about life.
In 2013 I was working for a tour operator, supervising 60 staff members of different nationalities throughout Europe. My favourite part of my job was having one on one meetings with each team member to discuss what they wanted to achieve. In 2014 I moved home to Cape Town. I loved the forward looking approach of those sessions so I did some research and discovered an entire industry dedicated to just that - life coaching.
I immediately signed up for the Coaching Essentials course with Coaching Development. This started a journey of self-discovery and ignited my passion for coaching. By the time my training was over I had resigned from my job and was ready to start working for myself. I have been open for business since January 2015 and have never looked back!
