About The Project

The Phoenix People Project is a documentary series about people who have gone through trauma but found their inner flame and are now inspiring, helping and motivating other people to do the same. People who have gone from Victim to Victor.

The mission is to change the idea society has of a victim to a victor. Someone who has survived trauma is stronger for it. So people start to feel pride instead of shame and have the confidence to get the help they deserve.

Because society now tells us that our trauma makes us weaker. Therefore, we should be ashamed of what we have been through. Shame is one of the biggest factors in why a lot of people don’t receive the help they need to recover.

Want to know more about the project and ask me some questions personally, come to the Online presentation. Here we start off with an inspiring spoken word performance followed by my presentation, and we finish off with an interview and questions by the audience. I hold this presentation every two to three weeks. But you can also watch it on demand.

About Iris

Personal Power Coach, Public Speaker, Maker Phoenix People

After having experienced my fair share of trauma myself, I felt so alone and disconnected from everyone and everything else. I thought I was weird, an alien, that I didn’t belong. Trauma itself is already hard.  But one of the worst things was how alone I felt because of it. 

That inspired me to create something for people to not feel so alone and ashamed. A place where they could find each other and themselves again. This is why I started the Phoenix People Project. So people can see they’re not alone in their experiences, but also to let them see there is a way out.

My vision is that what you have been through, doesn’t make you weaker, it makes you stronger. Be proud of it.



We have a list of sponsors who help make this documentary a reality. Here is a list of our incredible sponsors. Thank you for the support.

Share your story

There is power in sharing your story. It can not only help you with your recovery, but it can also help other people. This is because it shows people that they are not suffering alone. But only if you are fully willing and ready to do so. Especially if you came out of the other end. There is strength in vulnerability.

I need help

I hope this documentary series can offer you some support. Please don’t be afraid to look for help. For professional help, please consult your general practitioner. If that makes you uncomfortable, then I suggest that you seek counsel from someone you can trust. We try to select help organizations to team up with, so we can direct you to the right place.
