May is Female Founders and Mental Health Awareness month so it’s only appropriate this month’s IgniteHQ member profile highlights a woman founder using the power of the mind to heal clients.
Christine Yarbrough is the founder of Get Slender, a life coaching and weight loss practice dedicated to helping clients change their lifestyles and shed pounds through Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), a process that utilizes language to change one’s thoughts neurologically.
Yarbrough, a licensed chiropractor and teacher of anatomy and physiology, believes steadfastly in the power of the mind. According to Yarbrough, NLP is effective because the process transforms imagery one plays through the mind leading to modified behaviors.
In the past, Yarbrough used NLP regularly to treat fears and phobias, but it wasn’t until she embarked on her own weight loss journey that she found NLP was useful in shedding pounds.
“I stepped on the scale and found I weighed twenty five pounds more than I wanted,” recalled Yarbrough. “I thought if NLP can be used to cure my fear of heights, why couldn’t it be used to lose weight?”
Yarbrough used a combination of NLP and intermittent fasting to lose 25 pounds in 5 months. Encouraged by her success, she vowed to help other women do the same.
“Women tend to be the most critical. I want to help women feel good about themselves,” said Yarbrough.
Last December, Yarbrough founded Get Slender and self published a “slender little book” entitled Get Slender NOW! which touts the benefits of intermittent fasting and a clean, healthy lifestyle.
“We are bombarded by so many chemicals,” explains Yarbrough. “In my book I discuss avoiding chemicals that hurt our bodies’ ability to process.”
Yarbrough now sees clients during both individual and shared sessions from her IgniteHQ office.
