From Hyperactivity to Harmony: A Mother's Testimonial of Her 7 Year Old Son's Transformation.

Pregnant at 41

When Sara came to me, she was not expecting much out of the program.

At 41, she has been told that she is too old to conceive. Her heart was aching to have a child and to become the parent she was destined to be.

When we worked together, we focused on removing her belief that she was too old to conceive. During the program, Sara discovered the root cause of why she was struggling. An old belief formed when she was a teen, was blocking her from conceiving.

We removed the outdated beliefs and instilled positive and loving beliefs.

One month later, Sara found out she was pregnant and the baby was growing perfectly and healthy!!

Sara's boy is now a busy 6 month old and she could not be happier and more fullfilled!

In her words:

"I was worried my time was running out and reached out to Mel as a last resort. My session with Mel has been nothing short of amazing! After our sessions, I felt an instant shift in the way I related to myself and my capabilities! ❤️
I can’t recommend Melanie enough, I felt safe, heard and understood and wish I had found her sooner x"

Don't let PCOS or Andemyosis get in the way...

Suffering from the debilitating pain of Andemyosis, Lucy could no longer live her life.  She was avoiding making plans as her cycle became so irregular. She eventually quit her job and spent every day at home, out of fear her cycle would flare up. Lucy came to me, as no one could seem to help her.

Lucy was sceptical at first, but after 1 session, her first cycle came and went with very little pain. The next cycle was on time and almost pain-free.

During the sessions, we discovered why her body reacted so physically to an emotional belief she formed as a child. Once we reframed the belief, she could let go of the pain.

Lucy is now back chasing her career dreams and even considering a pregnancy.

In her words:

"Before my RTT sessions, I was searching for relief from the physical pain caused by my condition, which greatly affected the quality of my life.

The sessions were extraordinarily beneficial. My physical health and psychological health have improved dramatically from only one session!"

Stop smoking, best decision ever!

Mike came to me for smoking cessation. He realised how his smoking habits were not only affecting his health, but it was drastically impacting the health of his family too.

It took a health scare for Mike to want to improve his overall health to be there for his family in the future.

During the sessions, we uncovered the root cause of why he started smoking.

Unresolved childhood trauma was the cause and once we released that, it's as if he never smoked a day in his life.

Mike is now healthy and full of energy, joining his family on outdoor hikes and sporting events.

In his words:

"I am delighted with the results I achieved from my treatment and somewhat amazed at how my life changed so quickly following my treatment. The changes I wanted to achieve occurred directly after my first session with Mel and the whole process has been effortless.

Thank you again Mel!!…for helping me back to how nature intended me to be – a non-smoker!"
