About Us

“The power of Thought, the magic of the Mind!”
– Lord Byron

My Story

When I was a child, I viewed the world as an observer. Some used to call me a wallflower. Overweight and shy, being invisible and hiding behind my weight helped me to feel safe. Whenever I did receive attention from other children, it was from snickering, teasing, and laughing behind my back – and to my face.

It seemed better to live with the agony of being fat than with being noticed and ridiculed. Nonetheless, there was always a part of me that craved attention. Deep down, I knew I wanted to be a star. Frustrated, I started my first diet at 10 years of age, with little success at losing, and even less success at keeping off what little weight I had lost.

But then something changed. During my teen years, I became fascinated with personal transformation through the power of the mind. Even while still in high school and then at college, I took as many courses in psychology as I could. I discovered hypnosis and the power to transform myself.

I could hardly believe it. I used hypnosis, and it worked, helping me lose a significant amount of weight and gain self-confidence. Along the way, I discovered another key tool: Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT.

With hypnosis and especially EFT, I was able to become the star I had always wanted to be. The part of me that remembers that wallflower child is still amazed that now, as an adult, I give lecturers, seminars, and workshops to groups of hundreds of people. EFT was the catalyst that made it happen. It gave me the attitude, body, and health I desired.

When it came to choosing a career, I knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to help others learn the tools that have helped me so much, so that they too could transform their lives.

So I decided to become an EFT Practitioner and Certified Hypnotherapist. Specializing in helping people achieve their ideal weight, I created the weight loss program for an area hypnosis center, and now teach these techniques as an Adjunct Professor at J. Sergeant Reynolds Community College in Richmond, Virginia. As the owner of BreakThrough, I share my knowledge and my skills with both corporate and individual clients worldwide.

I teach them how to listen and respond to their body’s cues, and how to channel those cues into more constructive patterns of behavior. By dramatically changing a habitual way of thinking, and by learning new methods of coping with the stressors of their lives, our clients report profound changes in their lives.

Client Testimonials

After 15 years in very stressful jobs, I had developed a severe hand tremor, an exaggerated startle reaction, and a high anxiety level when focusing on work. I was so afraid of making a mistake that I would actually make the mistake I was trying not to make. Within a very short period, using the BreakThrough techniques, I conquered my anxiety and learned to relax. I am very grateful to Vickie for helping me reclaim my life.

Vickie presents a quiet but infectious enthusiasm and a low-key, deceptively casual approach. I immediately felt at ease doing the “silly” tapping, and felt immediate results on my chosen issue. Vickie is a real professional, but more importantly, she is a real person, not a distant, detached, objective therapist. She is involved, warm, and honestly optimistic.
