I've tried valerian root and melatonin both don't do much it's mainly worrying and negative emotions that affect my sleep

Answers:

There really aren't any. You've tried the "go-to" recommendations. There are some other things you can try that aren't supplements:
1. Get some counseling. If you have depression or anxiety you need to address the source of those issues, not try to cover them up with a capsule of herbs.
2. Consider a combination of journaling and meditation/pray. For some people, expressing their concerns in writing and then either meditating on them or lifting them to a higher power will get them out of your head.
3. Exercise. Daily exercise is just plain good for people and tends to reduce anxiety. Just don't do CrossFit ten minutes before bed.
4. Sleep "hygiene" includes making your room cool and dark, removing electronics (like cell phones), taking a warm bath or shower and following a relaxation routine as well as going to bed at the same time.

Melatonin does NOT work for everyone. If I take melatonin, I don't sleep and I'm in a fog for days after. Try magnesium and yoga, deep breathing helps but it takes practice. If you exercise too late at night, that can easily keep you up.

Getting a good night's sleep is one of the holy grails of the medical world. If I found a something that would work all the time, my net worth would soon be greater than most countries. There are a number of herbs which can help you sleep- according to folklore. Valerian is one, catnip and scullcap are two others. I think your challenge has to do more with relaxing and getting your mind off the day. We can talk more if you like.

I think more exercise might help. Running or other vigorous exercise will relieve stress and make you more tired. Another approach would be meditation where you learn to control your thoughts.

None.

One of the curious traits of the dietary supplement industry is that makers of vitamins and supplements don't actually have to prove their products do what they say they'll do. Most of their marketing relies heavily on anecdotal stories.( just like the one Mystique answered with)

Speak to a Dr about your anxiety. Ask about CBT, (cognitive behavoural theorpy) coping skills, dealing with stress.

Melatonin is an excellent sleep aid. You just have to figure out what dose works best for YOU. They typically come in 3mg, 5mg, and 10mg tablets. If 3 isn't enough, move up to 5. Still not enough? Take 2 of the 3mg. Etc.

A friend of mine needs 30mg (3 of the 10mg tablets) to fall asleep properly, but only uses it once or twice a month. My eldest daughter only takes a single 3mg tablet and is out like a light most of the time, but when she's super stressed or anxious, she'll bump it up to 10mg or 15mg for the same effect.

Note: While you can overdose on melatonin, it's NOT going to kill you. It will make you feel sick, though.
