Hello! Welcome to ReSTART!
My name is Lauren, and I am a professional counsellor; as well as an accredited parenting coach. People who have been with me a long time knows that I have joined this profession with a simple goal - To help my child become a Happier and more Confident person. As I go deeper into what I do, I realised that this is what I really what to do - To Help. To Make a Little Difference.
I believe that, while life's journey may not be smooth-sailing all the way, we can choose to walk it with happiness and confidence. You may be surprised to realise how our Perspectives - attitude and point of view towards things happening around us, can affect our emotions and actions. Sometimes, with a little help and guidance from the right people around us, we can turn things around quickly. Over the years, I have been working extensively with children, youths, adults of diverse and multi-cultural backgrounds, especially on issues related to:
Parenting & Family Counselling
Stress & Anxiety Management
Learning & Behaviour Management
Cyber Addiction, Management & Safety
Motivation & Focus
I have 2 bubbly children. A working mom myself, I understand the challenges parents and children have as they grow up towards independence. Big hugs to all parents out there! Not an easy journey! And so, I decided to get myself professionally trained in this area so that I can help parents who may need a little guidance in parenting. Accredited with International Triple P, I deliver Positive Parenting Programs to parents in Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, UK, US, South Africa, and the SEA countries.
Parenting can be a JOY, if we know "What To Do", "When To Do", and "How to Do".

Other than seeing clients, I also collaborate with the National Institute of Education, Singapore to run the Personal Growth and Development Program with the Teachers-trainees. Off working hours, I volunteer at Grace Haven, The Salvation Army; and The Ministry of Social and Family Development. I work with children placed in foster care, and At-Risk youths to ensure their psychological and physical well-being.

* Positive Parenting Program (aka Triple P) is an evidence-based programme that equips parents with techniques to promote their children’s (2 to 16 years old) psychological, social and emotional competence; built on a tiered system to provide different degrees of parental support. This program is recognised by government ministries and schools, and has been widely employed in many countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada, United Kingdom and Singapore (Ministry of Social and Family Development, schools, family service centres).
