About Nita-Reviews-Fees

About Nita Neshama Ng

In her former life, Nita has worked in the corporate world and non-profits as a manager and consultant, and briefly, as an MBA professor.  The search for her true calling brought her on a new path--first as a yoga, meditation & Body-Balance (a fusion of yoga-taichi-pilates) teacher (her clients incl. Nokia Siemens, Petronas, HSBC, UOB Bank, etc), retreat director and finally spiritual coach/director.  She is also an artist of spiritual paintings and author.

In the process, she walked away from an opportunity to do a PhD, turned down a United Nations job offer (which was her dream job up until then) because she had come to realise that being spiritual coach is the most life-giving for her.

"I am truly grateful and feel very blessed to BE happy everyday and I want to share this with everyone around the world!" - Nita Ng

She has been leading retreats and workshops around the world--including silent retreats in Ignatian Spirituality, Body Prayer, Batik and Art in Spirituality, and other prayer and meditation retreats since 2006.  She has been a member of staff at retreat centres in Vancouver Island, Canada; near Liverpool and Oxford, UK; and Cheung Chau, Hong Kong.  She has also presented and taught in New York, Washington DC, Monte Carlo, London, Spain, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia and India.

Since 2016, Nita is also a board member of Spiritual Directors International, a US-based organisation dedicated to spirituality for all, with members all over the world. She currently splits her time between the East (based in Hong Kong & Singapore) and the West (based in London & NY) while offering spiritual direction and meditation courses (in English and Chinese) online as well.

Suggested "Fees"
Spiritual Life-Coaching is something between counseling and life-coaching, but in a more wholistic way & supports you as a whole person in mind, body, soul & spirit. 

In general, the rates for counselling and life-coaching in Melbourne, Singapore and Hong Kong ranges between AU/SG $200-300 or HK$ 1000-2000 for a 45-60 minutes session.  Therefore, as a fair guide, we shall follow the same rates & time duration per session (be it face-to-face or via Skype, WhatApp & other video calls).

For those who have benefited from our sessions, and are able to gift more, please gift the above amounts or 3% of your monthly income, whichever is greater.

For those who earn less, perhaps you could consider gifting AU/SG $88, HK$500 or 3% of your monthly income, whichever is greater.

Embarking on the 25 days of ONLINE retreat over the period of more than two months, I am so thankful and grateful to deepen my spiritual journey in sacred silence with God and has redeemed fully the integration of self in spirit and soul. My dream and prayer has come true to experience the inner constant peace and loving myself unconditionally. As my soul calls me home more and more and I choose to listen ever deeper, never did I know what amazing gifts I embrace during this retreat. Thank you Nita for journeying with me. Never would I know if I have not taken up the invitation of these 25 days of contemplative retreat and listen deeply to my soul, I won't have discovered the wonders. I encourage everyone to take time for this retreat. Contemplative retreat in silence is going to be my annual journey . I am looking forward to further deepen my discernment in the 10 days in May. The journey has begun, not ending as in my daily life, I partake contemplation in prayer daily. Blessings to you! <3 Agape, Elizabeth (Netherlands)

Nita was my spiritual director for a few retreats, and it had been such a blessing  to have her accompany me in my spiritual journey. Nita is a mystic. She radiates joy and warmth because she lives out the joy and compassion of her faith. Her deep connection to the love of God was reflected on how she directed me, helping me to experience deeply this love. She is a woman of wisdom.  She listened deeply and helped me find clarity in my inner movements, make discernments and attain spiritual freedom. While she is a joyful person, she has the capacity to be present to pain and suffering, and provide a holding which made me feel secure and loved.  Her training and experience in spirituality, clinical pastoral care,  body work, yoga and healing enable her to provide spiritual direction in a holistic, open and compassionate manner. My experience of spiritual direction  in the past and then with Nita was like going from Confucius (structured DOing) to Lao Tzu (contemplative BEing), for she directed with the wisdom of a mystic. She did not give me answers but helped me to get in touch with my true self, which was like the sun hidden beneath the clouds. 
The spiritual journeys she walked with me were profound and grace filled, and she is a gift from God. - Lucy (Hong Kong, China)

I first met Nita at the Queenswood retreat center in Victoria, Canada. I was on a healing journey after many years of suffering with depression. Nita was employed there doing yoga and art classes & workshops. It was no accident that Nita was there with me as I went through a profound transformative experience at that time.  Nita played a big part in assisting and encouraging and inspiring me as I stepped into a new part of my life and a new part of me that I did not know was there. I took part in Nita’s classes which were wonderful, but more important to mention is that her presence is where her power lies. She held a space of acceptance, kindness and encouragement for me throughout the ups and downs of my stay at the retreat center. I discovered the artist in me while I was there and now I continue to paint and sell my work and I can also say that I am well. Nita has a wonderful gift to assist healing in others, I am so proud to know her.  – Leya (Canada)

Nita是我的Batik Art 與 瑜伽導師培訓的指導師,她很天賦,在藝術與瑜伽教學方面都有自己的風格。我喜歡跟Nita上課學習因爲她的指導方式是以心出發,富具配合性與創意性。除了技術之外,她還幫助我增添信心,讓自己不恐懼地去做,去學習。

上一般傳統的課老師通常要學生學畫一些規定的圖以及學習規定的技巧。Nita給我建議就是隨心多畫,Batik Art 是沒有不美的作品的,這讓沒有畫畫基礎的我安心放心的去發揮自己。很喜歡這種以學生爲主的教學方法。


每次與Nita一起閑聊或上課我都獲益不淺,她是個不折不扣的良師益友,也是我靈性旅途上的伴侶。我愛你,謝謝你。Namaste. Bisous. - Mai San (France & Malaysia)
