About us ...


A message from Sarah Sanders, Principal and tutor ...

"As Founder and Principal of the OASIS-TIME Beauty & Holistic Academy, I value skill and professionalism in my roles, both as a therapist and as a trainer. This is why our courses are fully accredited for professional practice by The Beauty Guild and The Holistic Guild, who are one of the most prestigeous professional associations in our industry.  We are delighted to hold The Guild Award of Excellence for Best Training School in 2009 and to have been Nominated for the Award in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 - the only training school to have been nominated five years running!

I am a qualified and experienced practitioner of beauty and complementary therapies, and hold the respected ITEC Diploma in Anatomy, Physiology & Massage, in addition to Diplomas in many other therapies. I am also a qualified teacher, holding the City & Guilds Teachers’ Certificate, as well as being a Reiki Master/Teacher and a member of several professional associations. Many of my beauty qualifications were obtained with The London College of Beauty  Make-up. These extensive skills and level of experience mean that knowledge is passed on to students in a relaxed and informal manner but, at the same time, ensure top-quality tuition. As I understand the concerns and difficulties of establishing and running a business, I am able to advise on marketing your new skills in order to set up your business and start building a client base. 

OASIS-TIME training courses are friendly and fun, but also give an excellent grounding in the chosen subject so that you can practise with confidence in your chosen field. OASIS-TIME courses are accredited by The Guild of Professonal Beauty Therapists (The Beauty Guild) and The Guild of Holistic Therapists which means that you can obtain insurance to practice your therapy commercially.

Our tutors are professionally qualified teachers and run their own therapy practices in addition to their role as OASIS-TIME trainers - read more about some of our team below! We look forward to welcoming you soon!"

Ann Hills is our tutor in the home counties ...

"Hi, my name is Ann Hills. I set up my practice as a trainer with OASIS-TIME Beauty and Holistic Academy following extensive research of other companies and individuals. It was important that I found a caring and experienced individual who would provide a professional, top-class service to others. I knew as soon as I met Sarah that I was sharing her enthusiasm for the future development of OASIS-TIME and was keen to assist in winning the Guild of Excellence Award for Best Training School 2009 and all the nominations since then,  plus providing a professional, top-class service to others.

I began my journey training as a complementary therapist in 1992 and with over 15 years experience as a trainer it was a natural progression to offer training in this field of work. I am passionate about natural healing and self-development and offer a confidential service. Alongside my role of trainer for Oasis-time I also run a successful therapy business - www.gentletouchtherapies.co.uk. I have been fortunate to have received my training from committed individuals who have willingly shared their knowledge and experience with me and I wish to do the same.

I passionately believe that everyone has the potential to assist in their own healing and have found that many aspects of the client's health is assisted by the treatments I offer, hence I have complemented my Reiki path through the delivery of NST (Bowen), Indian Head Massage, Thai Foot Massage amongst others as well as offering Facial Massage, Manicures and Pedicures to those who love the beauty side. My services as a trainer and therapist are offered within Berkshire and the surrounding areas and can be delivered to either individuals or businesses. The treatments on offer complement one another; they are deep but gentle.

I offer training to experienced therapists and those starting out, coaching is available on a one-to-one basis or in groups and I provide on-going support for those who train with me; this is offered at the monthly "get-togethers" or on a one to one basis as required.

I am member of a number of professional associations, related to beauty and holistic therapies as well as training, and I abide by formal codes of ethics and conduct. I am a qualified City and Guilds trainer, assessor and verifier and hold the ITEC Diploma in Anatomy, Physiology and Massage, in addition to Diplomas in many other therapies. I continue to keep up-to-date within the field of complementary therapies and develop my skills and knowledge with my many teachers, colleagues and trainees as I believe that learning is a life-long journey.

My long-term vision is to co-ordinate a team of therapists, who have received training from OASIS-TIME, to deliver a free Complementary Therapy Service to carers and to individuals with long-term and life-threatening illness, both children and adults. Short-term I am looking forward to meeting you and sharing my skills and knowledge to help you on your own journey."
