Kaity Leenheers

Hi Rodney,


Kaity here I saw you around a month ago.


Just letting you know I’ve been public speaking with confidence and I now feel excited about my career path rather than anxious!


Thank you for your help this has been a major shift for me.



Severe Sleeping Problem


I first came to see Rodney for insomnia…


It had been ongoing for more than 15 years and you name it, I had tried it!


The issues with sleeping had led to various other health concerns and it was taking over my life. I felt totally out of control and functioning normally was a challenge.


2 sessions with Rodney and I slowly started to fall in love with going to bed again.


After a few weeks, I noticed I was sleeping the best I had EVER slept, as well as having beautiful dreams.


Waking up and feeling great was a feeling I had forgotten, and now thanks to Rodney, I have it back
