Do you want...

Yes? Then, the Naked Hedgehogs Kick-Starter online programme is for you.

Over ten days you will get to dive in deep and start making the changes that you most want to make in your life and relationships.

It isn’t often that we get to press the ‘pause’ button and really look at what is important in life. Most of us are so busy, stressed or just pre-occupied with getting through the day that we don’t take the time to assess how we are doing at relating - probably the most important thing we do. Some of us only ever do that when we experience a deep shock or change in our lives. The good news is you don’t have to put living an authentic life on hold. You can start now. We can do it together.

Sarah has insight, astuteness and wisdom but above all she has the skill to help people understand their relationships, and to make change seem do-able, whatever your age, gender or situation.

Think of it as an MOT or check-up for your life and relationships. Don’t wait for a crisis. Take the time now to assess what is going well and what could be improved. We will help you to identify the changes you want to make and help you take steps to make them happen.

WARNING: This programme is designed to kick-start your journey to becoming more authentic and will therefore get you emotionally sweaty! The daily lessons and tasks will take you around 20 minutes to complete. The participants who get the most out of the programme are those who commit and complete all the modules.

Sarah Abell is a brilliant coach who can help you live an authentic life. Authenticity is the key to happiness, fulfilment and success. If you’ve lost a sense of who you are and what you stand for, let Sarah Abell guide you back ‘home’.
— Suzy Greaves, Editor of Psychologies Magazine.

What to expect when you are Kick-Starting:

10 days of lessons, tasks and discussions covering:

  • The benefits of authentic relating
  • Assessing where you are now
  • Identifying your goals
  • Getting clear on your priorities
  • Understanding your impact
  • How to create connection with just about anyone
  • Dealing with conflict
  • Knowing yourself
  • Following your passions - Living your purpose
  • Keep on keeping on

Stand alone or Stepping stone?

The Kick-Starter programme is the foundation course for the brand new (but still intensive) "60 days to authenticty" Bootcamp, but it works perfectly well on its own for anyone wanting to assess their life and relationships (but might need a short burst of motivation). What's more, you can revisit the Kick-Starter material again as often as you want, for free.

However, if you want to go even deeper, it will give you a taste of what you can expect from the "60 days to authenticty" Bootcamp. Only those who have successfully completed the Kick-Starter programme will be allowed to take their place on the 60-day programme.

I know that I’ve changed my behaviour both deliberately and subconsciously because of this programme and I have no doubt that some of the things I have set in motion have already rubbed off on others.”

”I’m so pleased I challenged myself to jump in because now I can see this course having really long term benefits.”


I think you judged the content really well and the amount of support you provided to those of us who posted was far more than I was expecting and I feel really privileged to have had that attention.”


Just a huge thank you for teaching me new ideas and giving me tools that I can use in my relationships. I think that this programme will have a long lasting impact in my life.
— A few comments from previous participants of our courses

I'm Sarah Abell and I will be your host over the 10-day programme along with the support of my husband, David. For those of you who don't know me - I am an experienced coach, writer and presenter. I am the former Agony Aunt of The Daily Telegraph, the author of 'Inside Out - how to have authentic relationships with everyone in your life' and a regular columnist for Psychologies Magazine. I have also given two TEDx talks on authentic relationships.

Perhaps the most important thing to know about me is that my mess became my message. In my early 20s I discovered that my relationships weren't as genuine or as strong as I wanted them to be. I had lots of friends and an amazing career but something was missing. I didn't have the depth of connections that I longed for. I struggled to express emotions. I was a perfectionist, a controller and a 'speedaholic'.

Over the next 25 years I discovered what it takes to relate authentically. I learned from people who were much better at relating than me. Discovering what it means to be authentic and how to build deep connections became my passion and then my job. The Kick-Starter looks at many of the invaluable lessons that I have learnt along the way.

Sarah Abell’s approach to relationships is informed, pragmatic and above all it works.

The course is a great investment at only £3 a day and will give you a much greater benefit than an overpriced cup of coffee!

So, what are you waiting for? If you truly long for deeper and better relationships; if you want to improve your connections with loved ones, friends and colleagues; if you are finally ready to ditch the masks and show up as your authentic self; and if you are committed to making the necessary changes right now to make your life better...
