Meet our Coaches

Coach Ugonna Ukwu

If you’re ready to take your wholeness journey to the next level, then let’s do it together. I have been honored to be a Hearts Returning Home Group and 1-1 Coach to many brave women just like you. I bring my background as a lay minister, certified health and mental health coach, registered nurse, and soon-to-be family nurse practitioner to enhance your experience with our life-changing HRH tools. I help bring clarity and personalized application of these tools curated to galvanize your wholeness and freedom. I provide focus and accountability to women desiring to structure their life better, prioritize self-care, and navigate their relationships with healthier boundaries. I serve as a compassionate and safe other to facilitate facing painful and difficult situations and past traumas using the HRH method. I coach women how to release the compassion and nurturing toward themselves they so often give to others. We will expose lies, negative thought patterns, and trigger points that specifically hold you back from receiving the breakthrough you are after. Through motivational interviewing, empowering prayer, and encounters with Jesus, we will unleash the Jesus Fire Girl within for you to soar and pursue your destiny. Coach Ugonna offers one-to-one coaching.

Powerful testimonials of women who have been impacted by personal coaching:

I experience encounters with Jesus, bringing Him into my healing continues to be the best part. I realized Jesus was making it literally like it never happened. Everything new. I am waking up, I feel like myself for the first time in many years. I have my sense of humor back. I am learning to deal with life and stand up for myself so much better.
