Life Essence housing and support was a God-given vision and thus was birthed shortly after.

Despite a difficult couple of years due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are still standing firm and we are trusting God to continue building this ministry and reaching more and more women as we grow and expand while we continue to follow His leading
Kelleigh CEO and Founder – A bit about me
I grew up in South London and has been raised in a family who devotes their lives to Jesus. I attended church from a very young age with my grandparents, of which my grandfather was the Pastor of the church.
I have encountered life struggles from coming from a broken home, experiencing toxic relationships to becoming a teen mum, which leads me into the world of support work. I have worked with children and families, vulnerable adults and young people for over 20 years.
Through God, this has led me to pursue and share my passion for people, by building healthy and safe environments through Life Essence Housing and Support. For women like myself and the team have gone through trauma and need a safe space to heal.
“I love people, I love to support, empower and encourage the people I meet to achieve their goals. Getting to know the real you excites me and supporting you to be your true self is magical!”
Blu House Manager – A bit about me
I joined Life Essence around September 2020 on a volunteer basis and just loved the good that the team were doing. Since coming to know God more than 8 years ago, my heart has been to help others and to come alongside them in their trauma. When Kelleigh invited me to be part of the team, I really just felt that’s where God was leading me next in my journey. Since then, I have been so blessed to be able to both support and build relationships with many different women, that they have trusted me in sharing their trauma stories with me and that I have been able to work alongside some wonderful women of God with such a heart for Jesus too.
Having suffered a lot of trauma from a very young age, I can empathize with others experiencing similar. As a young girl growing up, I was subject to a lot of abuse and domestic violence within my family home. I left home at the age of 14yrs and was soon after groomed by an older man. With him, I suffered massively. All the damage and the pain I experienced, further down the line, led to unhealthy relationships, further abuse, distrust of people leading to self-isolation, unhealthy behaviours formed, I fell into addiction and the list goes on... Then I met God… and He turned my life around! He showed me love I’d never experienced before, brought some good people into my life and walked me through a LOT of healing, and bit by bit my life changed for the better. I now want Him to use me to do the same for others. Life Essence is a place where I’m able to do just that..
Healing Prayer- A bit about Hazel
Hazel has a powerful testimony of how one encounter with Jesus began a journey of healing from abuse, and a time of self-discovery that changed everything in her life
Within Life Essence she uses her testimony and her own experiences of healing prayer to minister into the lives of the women under our care.
Hazel believes that
‘Life Essence Homes are God-given ‘Safe Spaces’ where women can find rest, recovery and restoration, and that within these homes they will experience true freedom from the past and the heartfelt desire to then pass the Good News on to others
And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you..
Life Essence UK believes in reaching people from every background, race, religion, age or gender, and to show how Jesus loves us all, no matter where we have come from and what we have been through, that He is our healer and comforter in times of trouble..
