I am a parenting consultant, working with parents, families and supporting early years professionals in their practice. I am also a speaker and facilitator (if I believe it, I can deliver it).
I studied Anthropology at Goldsmiths College University of London – giving me the knowledge and skills to ask the questions that satisfied my curiosity in people, but more so it reinforced my genuine appreciation of enjoying the stories shared by people and how we relate to each other, our environment and how we navigate - against the odds to find that which brings us joy, hope, faith, charity and clarity.
I have worked in the voluntary and public sector prior to establishing Parent Lab. My passion is 100% on the well-being of each individual within the family and within society. Therefore it's important that clients feel respected, seen, heard and valued in the spaces they occupy and that they are left more confident in the roles they then choose to play in their lives.
I have three project areas (and more continue to grow):MAMM
- 'Maureen Anderson's' menopause moments - we focus on the 3 Ms of MAMM - Mouthfuls, Movement and Moments;
The Black Menopause Collective - collaboration of conversations;MAMA
- Men and menopause awareness - menopause is not just a 'woman's' issue. Our menopause support is inclusive and we offer a safe spaces;
MA - Menopause Awareness for all - if you are LGBTQ+ (we may not have all the answers but we have the heart to hear and support so we extend the hand of inclusion) 'the long and unpredictable road travelled together teaches much' - we guide you to this website for further information: QMChttps://www.queermenopause.com/qmc).
All projects are offered with the Deaf Community in mind and with the support of BSL interpreters and Project Talawah this is made possible.The Kitchen Table
– a space for people that have experienced loss: and Parent Lab
- a safe space for parents to access support through all the stages of their parenting email@example.com
