Our Mental Health Programmes Include

Intensive Psychotherapy & Psychoeducation

We use various methods to help you understand the emotional issues, traumas and negative thoughts related to your mental health condition. Our process includes individual therapy and psychoeducation to provide you with knowledge about your mental health condition. We explore the triggers and how to manage or reduce the symptoms.

Restorative care, Physical Health Therapies

Our restorative care is designed to help you find balance between body, mind, and spirit. We use grounding techniques such as focusing on your five senses, deep breathing, and mindful meditations that may help you refocus on the present moment to distract yourself from anxious feelings. We believe in the power of holistic healing to bring balance and peace to our clients; thus, we recommend complementary therapies based on individuals’ needs. These can include:

  • Yoga to build strength, awareness and harmony in both the mind and body.

  • Massage to encourage relaxation.

  • Acupuncture to relieve chronic pain, improve energy and restore balance. Reflexology to promote the body’s natural healing process

  • Osteopathy to reduce anxiety, pain, mental health dysfunction and improvements in self-care.

  • Kinesiology to enhance and influence key internal body systems such as the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems and provides effective stress-management technique

  • Tai Chi and Qi Gong to help with mind and body connection, mental focus, breathing, and relaxation.

Medical/ Family Physician Support

We understand that mental health is a complex issue and that no one size fits all approach is the answer. At Blink, we recognize that family physicians play a vital role in the health and well-being of individuals, as people are more than a collection of disconnected parts. Therefore, we also recommend seeking further treatment from a family physician. Talking to a doctor or health professional about a mental illness is very important. Our goal is to support and empower you to take control of your mental health and be your advocate throughout the process.

Lifestyle adjustments

When a person suffers from a mental health condition, their sleep, diet and lifestyle often take a toll. We explore wellness by also looking at sleep hygiene, and life style to help you examine how certain lifestyle choices have influenced your mental health. We also make recommendations to  address nutrition by talking to a professional about nutrients that the mind needs to function optimally. We will help you implement a healthier lifestyle.

Some of the mental health conditions that we work with at Blink

Comprehensive Treatment for Depression

At Blink, we understand how complex and multifaceted depression can be. That's why we have developed an all-encompassing treatment approach that takes into account the whole person. Our initial step is to identify any underlying causes for depression, as well as any co-occurring mental health conditions. We use our Resilience 360 treatment method, which includes one-to-one therapy and psychoeducation to assist you in developing the necessary skills and tools to deal with life's ups and downs. Additionally, based on your symptoms, we will suggest complementary therapies that we believe would be beneficial in achieving your goals and improving your quality of life.

Managing Anxiety Holistically with Personalized Care

We recognize that anxiety can have a crippling effect on individuals. That's why we're committed to providing a safe and comfortable environment for our clients. Our holistic approach to treating anxiety is tailored to your specific needs. We believe in addressing the root causes of anxiety from multiple angles. Our wide-ranging methods include acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness-based strategies, and other approaches to decrease the regulatory function of anxiety. Additionally, we incorporate grounding techniques and recommend complementary therapies such as acupuncture, yoga, meditation, and lifestyle changes to help alleviate symptoms where appropriate. Our ultimate aim is to equip you with the skills and resources necessary to manage your anxiety over the long term.

A Comprehensive Approach to Healing Trauma

We understand the profound and long-lasting impact that trauma can have on someone's life. The brain's rewiring and changed perception of the world can easily dominate a person's life. To assist in the healing process, our approach is all-encompassing.

We keep in mind that psychological trauma, in many cases, affects the body as well. This can make a person feel detached from themselves. That's why we incorporate complementary therapies such as restorative movements, mindfulness practices, and somatic approaches. It's all about helping you process the physical symptoms of trauma.

Living with a Chronic Illness: Navigating Emotional and Physical Obstacles

Coping with chronic illness can be challenging and trigger intense emotions that impact physical health, work, relationships, lifestyle, and mental strength. Blink offers care and support to help clients manage the physical, emotional, and mental strain of their condition. Our comprehensive approach combines traditional mental health practices with alternative therapies to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses all areas of ill health, including mental and emotional wellbeing. The goal is to restore mental health, minimize suffering, and enhance the quality of life.
