What others are saying

My experiences with Ineke have always been supportive, warm & extremely helpful in guiding and implementing tasks and day to day order. Ineke is inspiring with her advice and offers this advice in a nurturing, kind and non-judgmental deliberation. Highly recommend her services.

Thank you!


I’ve been fortunate enough to spend lots of time with Ineke and her family over the years, and when it comes to her parenting style and household management I am in awe.

Her kids are simply delightful people which is a reflection on her and her husband. Ineke speaks to her kids on their level, actively listens to them and always seeks to empower her kids to make their own decisions and choices. Her house runs like a well oiled machine!

Ineke has achieved a lovely balance of order and stability combined with fun, laughter and play.


I have been privy to the organisation, strategies, and structures Ineke has developed and put in place within her home, her children’s lives and her everyday practices. She creates order and simplicity from chaos and makes being a mother of 4 children and managing a home look easy. Walking into Ineke’s home is a pleasure…it’s a fun, happy and calm place to be.

Ineke creates a calm environment through her ability to simplify life for her family. Coming from an Early Childhood background I see great value in assisting children to become independent, capable and calm individuals. Ineke has instilled these values within her children through the step-by-step systems she has created and adapted to suit her individual children and her family as a whole.

I have great respect for the way Ineke interacts with her children. She treats them with the utmost respect and gives them the time, space and strategies to engage and interact in an equally respectful way.

Her children and home are a testament to her approach.


Ineke was a breath of fresh air and a fantastic help to our busy family dynamic. As parents working full time with two young children, finding anytime to organise the household and stay on-top of the everyday seemed impossible!

The Family Platform provided the positive reinforcement we needed to show that we CAN in fact manage our time to allow for family meal prep, healthy eating, tips for fussy eaters, and crucial time savers with lunch boxes and on the run snacks.

Ineke was so understanding and took the time to listen to our needs and the key trigger points to help improve time management and to reinforce that meal planning and organisation should not be adding to the weekly stress.

She took the time to get to know us and what we needed and provided ongoing and comprehensive advice with her very positive outlook on life! She has an incredible relationship with her kids that empowers them to make their own decisions that I was able to really learn from.

I would recommend The Family Platform to anyone needing some positive reinforcement and help to stay in control of the work life balance. Ineke had tips I had just never thought of coming from a busy household with four young children – which has made a big difference to our family.


I have had the privilege of knowing Ineke for a few years now as I teach her daughter weekly. I would consider Ineke not only a parent at my studio, but a friend.

Ineke is warm, engaging, loving, and lights every room she walks in. Her energy is contagious, inviting and inspiring, allowing for many conversations and teachable moments that I reflect on in my daily life as a mother of an 8-month-old myself.
