Why we refer to you as 'Clients' not 'Patients'
What image comes to mind when you think “patient”? For many people it is an image of someone in a paper gown sitting on an exam table being spoken to by a fully clothed person in a position of power and control…or some similar scenario of unbalanced relationship. The patient needs to be “taken care of”. And there are certainly times when that is warranted, even welcomed …. think acute emergency or imminent health crises.
Now think of being a “client”. For many people, there’s a more balanced dynamic. Each person is in charge of her/his own power and can determine her/his own level of participation and engagement. The client is seeking counsel and direction from someone with expertise and knowledge. There is a partnering and mutual agreement upon goals and outcome. The practitioner and client work together to shape the plan because both points of view are vital to the success of the mission.
Because words are so powerful, Dr. Gosselin makes a conscientious effort to differentiate between a client and a patient. Dr. Gosselin enjoys partnering with her clients to collaborate on health goals, discover the root cause(s) of the problem and develop real-life, do-able solutions that can transform a life.
