Elke loves assessing and counselling children using creative play therapy techniques and works with the parent and child to build attachment.
(Please note that Elke does not do forensic work and will refer cases of child abuse.)
Elke is also available to do marriage assessments (using the Prepare- Enrich programme) and offers marriage enrichment counselling.
Having been involved in adoption for many years and being an adoptive mother herself, it was natural to go into the adoption field. Her focus is on related adoptions, the adoption of older children and building attachment.
Elke is accredited to provide national adoptions by the Department of Social Development since 2015 and has a Specialty in Adoption registered by SACSSP (the South African Council for Social Service Practitioners), which is the regulatory body in South Africa. Elke is a member of the Executive Committee of the National Adoption Coalition of South Africa (NACSA).
