Self-Care and After-Care Half Day Supervision Session

My last 2019 half day event for professionally qualified massage therapists is on Friday 13th December. As always it will be relaxing, nourishing and fun and a great chance to spend time with other awesome, like-minded bodyworkers. And specifically, this time the focus is on our own self care and how we can best help our clients between massages by offering them useful, relevant and accessible after-care suggestions. It’s time to feel good! 

Details: 2pm – 6pm at BCMB, Clifton Bristol,  £45.

Please contact me directly to book your place.  Whether you’ve worked with me before or not, you’re very welcome and I’m sure you’ll feel at home as soon as you arrive!

Can you think of a nicer way to gain 4 CPD POINTS?

Make Life Better Evening Classes – starting October 29th, Clifton Bristol

Do you want the good news or the great news?

The good news is that (at the time of writing) there’s still time to become part of the next Make Life Better group. We are assembling next Tuesday (29th October) for the first of 4 Tuesday evenings to pay attention to FINDING OUR FOCUS, CHANNELLING OUR CONFIDENCE and MAKING LIFE BETTER. And not making life better in some abstract or even delusional positive thinking way, but better by learning ways to make tangible, noticeable, enjoyable improvements to our own daily lives.  

There are currently 2 places still available. Find out more here…> 

The great news is that by joining the group you won’t only end up making your life better, you’ll contribute to making the lives of everyone in the group better too. Your uniqueness is just what we need. 

And, of course, the ultimate gain from all of this is that when We feel better, think better and do better, this has ripple effects that go out wider than we can ever truly know.  So many positive impacts that we can only wonder about…  

If there’s even a little part of you that’s curious about this, take a leap and join the group. What’s 4 evenings out of an entire life? Enough to make life better, that’s for sure!

I’m looking forward to working with you,

NEW – Friday Evening Supervision!

I’m delighted to be starting another NEW MASSAGE SUPERVISION GROUP, this time in Bristol at BCMB on Friday Evenings. We’ll meet monthly and discuss, share, practice and celebrate all things massage. 

Those who know me will know how much I value supervision. I think it’s essential for all practitioners and have adopted a mission to make it available to as many people as possible. 

Currently there are four places waiting to be snapped up and I expect them to go pretty fast. Please get in touch with me directly if you’re interested in joining. 

Each meeting will last 2 – 2.5 hours (depending on group size), and costs £25 per person.  It’s a bargain.

Supervision Wales is GO!

Supervision Wales is GO!

I’m delighted to announce my new Massage Supervision Group starting in South Wales later this month. Meeting between Abergavenny and Crickhowell, it’s a space for massage practitioners to get support and be inspired, to share, to learn and hopefully to have a laugh! Please contact me ASAP if you’re interested in joining. Monday Mornings, monthly-ish! First one June 24th.

Massage Supervision in Abergavenny

I’m really excited to be planning a new massage supervision group in Abergavenny.

I’ve facilitated supervision groups in Bristol since 2004, after being approached by a subset of my first MTI Holistic Massage Diploma group. Such a joyful way to continue sharing my love of massage, supporting practitioners as they develop into the therapist they’re destined to be.

Now that I live in South Wales, it just makes sense to start a group there, and Abergavenny is a truly beautiful and gently bustling location.

If you are interested, please get in touch. You can message me via this website, email me directly at sarah@sarahhoare.co.uk or call or txt me on 07976 710368.

If you’re not sure what I’m on about, you can read more about supervision and mentoring here…

Thanks, Sarah x

Vessels of Honour

Listening to Oprah’s podcast again, this time with Tim Storey, I’m struck by his phrase, “a vessel of honour”. Those who know me will know my love of words. I love how words sound together, how they conjure up images and feelings, and how the right words at the right time can elevate us to lighter moods and higher outlooks.

So, today I’m being a vessel of honour. And it feels great. To me it means that I set aside my doubts and concerns, my self-pity and my fears, and I fill myself with optimism and possibility. I ask, “What if today was going to be a great day? What if I could let things be easy? What if I could shine like the star I am from now til dusk? What if this blog could pretty much write itself as I allow myself to rise above the fear of judgement and the risk of failure?

Being a vessel of honour asks me to stand a little taller and breathe a little deeper. But it’s not just that. Being a vessel of honour calls me to awaken within and let my heart fully open into the moment. Connecting with my honour stirs my courage. Connecting with my honour reminds me that I have gifts to share and help to offer.

It’s with this openhearted courage that I invite you to the next stop on the Tribe of Thrive train.



If you want to get on with living and thriving; If you need to get unstuck; If anxiety’s holding you back; this 4 week evening class is for you.

A neuroscience-driven, fun and transformative way to get inspired, get focused, get confident and get on. You just need to get booked in. Full details are on my website.

All vessels of honour are welcome. And I’m excited to share this time, this learning and this opportunity with you.  Contact me to reserve your place.
