In Very Tales Nicky combines behavioural psychology, stories and creativity. Others would describe her as dedicated, empathetic, curious, energetic and creative. Her core values are love, freedom and clarity.
Nicky lives with her partner and two daughters in Breukelen, Netherlands. Nature is her greatest source of inspiration and being outside helps her to recharge. She has an international background as she has lived and worked in different countries around the world.
Nicky has a passion for people and a genuine fascination for why they do what they do. She can listen, observe, dig and connect like no other in order to gain insight into behaviour. After studying Psychology at Leiden University, she specialised in Economic and Consumer Psychology (cum laude, 8.8) in order to become a behavioural psychologist.

Stories in many forms
