I, Cecilie, am the face behind Appetite 4 Life; a keen out-door person, photographer, cook, mother, wife and accredited NLP Master, TLT and Hypnosis practitioner. A lover of human beings and life; I have a passion for empowering women, children and families to be the best they can possibly be. Integrity, simplicity and honesty lie at the heart of everything I do.
I grew up in Denmark and Portugal before settling in the UK where I gained my university degree and qualified as an accountant, while working part time and raising three young children. Several corporate jobs were filled before commencing a midwifery degree which, due to family life, was put on hold. Qualifying as a Master Practitioner of NLP, TLT and Hypnosis and subsequently setting up Appetite For Life, as a birth and family specialised coach, was a natural progression of my life experiences as an accountant, trainee midwife, mother, wife and accredited NLP practitioner.
I started Appetite 4 Life in the hope that it would not only make me smile but others also! The kitchen is the base of the blog, where food and thoughts will appear in one happy unison, as I strongly believe it is at the heart of a home – a place where you actively can participate, listen, relax and share. Many of my fondest memories and moments stem from smells, sounds and feelings experienced in a kitchen – even today as an adult it is where I catch up with friends and spend most of my time. Why? Because it is in the simplest places calm can be found.
