“Born without arms, not without attitude!”
Nicky Abdinor is a Clinical Psychologist, Inspirational Speaker and Founder of the non-profit organization, Nicky’s Drive. Following the completion of her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at Stellenbosch University, Nicky lectured Psychology students part-time and established her private practice at Milnerton Medi-Clinic in Cape Town. Her therapeutic focus is on Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy – she is a firm believer that it’s not our situation but how we think about our situation, that determines our emotional well-being. Nicky began giving talks during her university years when people saw her potential to inspire audiences. She is now a professional member of the PSASA (Cape Chapter). Her speaking career highlights are when she was invited to speak at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee in 2012 (she did 9 talks in 5 days!) and her selection as a TedX speaker in 2013. Nicky is always commended on being a credible agent of change whether you are connecting with her one-on-one or in an audience. When you meet Nicky, it is hard not to recognise that she puts her message into practice!
