A trained actress, life coach + meditation guide, I’m passionate about getting up in front of audiences and sharing the knowledge I gained from writing Addictive Daughter’s book The Inner Fix with my friend Joey.
As well as understanding the many stresses + pressures the millennial generation is facing today (including anxiety, depression, self-doubt and the ‘compare and despair’ syndrome arising from social media overwhelm), writing The Inner Fix gave me valuable insight into why us millennials are struggling so much in our romantic lives today - and what can be done about it.
"Persia somehow manages to combine incredible insight and sage advice with a huge dollop of humour. Her down-to-earth approach makes her the ultimate coach for anyone looking to heal their soul, grow their relationship and make a change in their life."
- Tui McLean, Producer, BBC
Whilst I know this world’s got bigger problems than whether you + I are happy in our love lives, I’m convinced that if we as a society spent more time + resources teaching people how to have healthy relationships from an earlier age (which has NOTHING to do with how may 'likes', 'followers' or 'matches' they're able to garner) , we’d dramatically decrease the likelihood of divorce, addiction + family breakdowns – and all the complicated crap that goes along with them.
That’s why I’m committed to supporting people get + sustain the happy, healthy relationship they most desire via my coaching programs, group meditation sessions, daily Facebook Livestreams and my bespoke workshops + keynote speeches, as described below.
“Persia's honesty, wisdom, way with words, experience, forward-thinking attitude and go-getter spirit sets her apart from so many others in this space. If you need help getting yourself together - in love, life, work or play - she'll sort you out in minutes! She really is one to watch.”

WHAT I OFFER
I offer dynamic, engaging + transformative workshops, meditation sessions + keynote speeches that have the added benefit of being entertaining (I believe this makes for a far more effective learning experience).
My classical acting training and experience performing all over the world makes me very relatable + great at Q+A’s (I’m told!) and I pride myself on my ability to offer profound life lessons + wisdom through the art of storytelling.
Most importantly, though, I’m able to really identify with audiences around their romantic struggles because this is the area I’ve experienced the most transformation in my own life: having once been a serial cheater + obsessive love addict, I’m proud to now be in a healthy, loving relationship that inspires + challenges me daily.
Topics I speak on include (but are not limited to):
#FAIL: Why Millennials Are Doomed To Divorce Young
WLTM x WTF?: Why Dating Apps Are Destroying Your Chance Of Finding Love
WHAT SHE'S NOT TELLING YOU: Sex + Love Addiction In Millennial Women
WHERE ARE THEY?! The Fastest Way To Meet Your Soulmate (clue: it doesn’t involve a dating app)
THE INNER FIX: How To Be Stronger, Happier + Braver In The Chaos Of The Modern World
In addition to the above, I also equip corporate clients with key insights into the psychology that impacts Gen Y’s consumer behaviour, as well as providing powerful tools + techniques to support businesses + organisations in performing at peak level.
Below is a list of some other subjects I speak on, as explored in The Inner Fix:
- Stress, overwhelm + burnout
- Anxiety + depression
- Self-worth + confidence
- Effective communication
- How to use your addictive personality to your benefit
- Unleashing creativity
- Healthy social media usage
My sessions combine story-telling with a variety of practical techniques including guided meditation, group Reiki + elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to give my audience a diverse + impactful experience that will benefit them well beyond the workshop itself.
In addition to the topics mentioned above, I’d be happy to create a bespoke workshop/ speech tailored to your specific needs – please see below for details of how to get in touch.
"Persia's humble approach to supporting and guiding people makes her so accessible. She always draws on her own experience giving her a relatable and grounded edge which so many others are yet to master. It doesn't matter what question you ask, you'll always get honesty, wisdom and usually a bit of humour too."
- Lauren Windle, Features Writer, The Sun
