Our Story

Hi, I'm Evelina

I am a founder of Elite Mind and Elite Mind Academy.

As someone who had to start the new life in a foreign country without even speaking the language, I know the importance of being able to adapt to the fast-changing world around us.

It is not what happens to us that shapes our success and wellbeing, but the way we respond to it, and the lessons we are able to take out of new experiences.

My work is driven by the curiosity about what makes the difference between certain individuals who thrive and grow with challenges, and others who struggle to cope with changes and pressures of our modern lives.  This question has set me on a path of over a decade of research and experimentation to find the difference in individual wellbeing, and how to tap into our best versions of ourselves when we need it the most.

I find my answers in neuroscience, evolutionary psychology and interpersonal neurobiology that explains what shapes our habits, behaviours, physical and mental health, and most importantly – the level of success that we can create in our lives and business. By working with the most successful and driven executives, entrepreneurs & academics, as well as supporting the most vulnerable individuals suffering from mental conditions, I have developed unique, brain-based approaches to personal, professional, and organisational development.

While we don’t have a user manual for our brain, I work with great passion to translate the neuroscience research into practical applications to increase resilience to stress, improve performance, and enhance individual and organisational wellbeing. 

Why Elite Mind?

I believe organisations have a social responsibility to provide the right environment & conditions where every individual can contribute to their full potential. However, what we often see is extreme scenarios of either high-performers sacrificing their personal lives for the corporate profit, or stressed, depressed, anxious, burnt out individuals who are struggling to cope and contribute.

Our mission is to bridge the gap between organisational performance and individual wellbeing, and to eradicate institutionalised boundaries surrounding mental health, empowering everyone to perform at their best where it matters the most. 

Elite Mind is a support resource to help individuals exceed expectations without making personal sacrifices and to equip organisations with neuroscience-based tools for ensuring employee wellbeing, improving operational performance, establishing effective leadership development and creating an all-inclusive culture of learning and growth.

How can we do that?


Every change must start with awareness first, followed by the right energy and culture, and finally implemented into strategic action. We help to increase awareness through speaking at conferences, events, and organisational workshops and support practical implementation through organisational consulting, tailored leadership development programmes, and neuroscience-based coaching. 

Our ongoing research devoted to translating the latest academic and scientific findings into unique, practical applications that sets us apart from other traditional management consultancies. 

Our performance is measured by completing thorough diagnostics before and after working with you, and we have a network of professionals to address your requirements where your needs fall beyond our expertise. Our 121 coaching and stress resilience programmes also include complimentary Heart Rate Variability monitoring and smart lifetime assessments using the latest technology. 

We have worked with local and international businesses, including:

Pret A Manger, Hilton, Europcar, RB, SEB group, Pinewood studios, Thames Valley Fertility, Care UK, Yoga for Harmony studio, Iceland, Screwfix, JCB, Odeon, Vue Cinemas, Inomed, Wiley & Sons, and many more.
