Jenny's Experiences as a Parenting Coach
Ally-Dance-Playground.jpg

Jenny Ng is a conscious mother of an 12-year-old daughter. 

She was born and raised in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.  After obtaining my bachelor degree from a university in the USA, she  got herself a job at an infocomm research institute in Singapore, and have settled down here since 1997.

In 2010, she became a mum, because of an Aha moment of feeling the unconditional love of her 2-month-old daughter, she has then started her self-awakening journey and personal growth till this day.  

As a conscious mum, conscious parenting coach, family life educator, and associate lecturer at a post-secondary education institution, she is passionate about providing parents, primary child caregivers, and even teachers, alternative perspectives and methods in connecting with children, pre-teens, adolescents, or at any age group. 

As a conscious mother, she strongly believes when parents are clear about who they are, what their parenting manifesto is, where they wish to lead their family life towards, they can  truly enjoy their children and grow together with them.

She has obtained my Master of Education in Family Education from University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, since 2017.  She is also a certified conscious parenting coach trained by Dr Shefali Tsabary, a certified Wutao Dance Therapy instructor trained by Michelle Locke, she completed her 90-hour Compassionate Inquiry Self-Study Short Course developed by Dr Gabor Mate, and a MSF accredited Family Life Educator.

She has good listening ears, and enjoys having conversations with children, teenagers, parents and grandparents, learning about and from them.  She is a self-care advocate, as life is getting calmer and calmer with the practice of daily meditation,  regular dance therapy sessions, daily reflective journals and regular mindful connection with her child by doing nothing for 10 minutes.
