Elvin has more than 20 years of experience of working with adults in various settings. She has been working virtually since 2013 and believes that whilst online therapy is different, it is not necessarily a lesser thing. Working online provides clients with more flexibility and saves them time as they go about their lives. 

Elvin is highly experienced in working with acute and generational trauma, relationship issues, workplace dynamics and many more. The difficulty with people who are having difficulties with their sense of self is that these are not easy to articulate and to get a clear diagnosis. The relational approach Elvin offers provides a refreshing alternative to the classical diagnostic paradigms and supports the client in their well-being.
