Looking Glass For Those Affected by Eating Disorders

Non profit foundation for those affected by eating disorders or disordered eating.  Through innovative and accessible programs and services, we provide community members with the support they need, no matter where they are on their recovery journey.


Peer Support:

We offer three safe, inclusive, non-judgmental peer support programs to help individuals feel supported and empowered on their healing journey. These programs are available to Canadian residents of all genders and are offered at no cost. No formal eating disorder diagnosis or referral is required.

Counselling:

Everyone should have access to the help they need and deserve. Looking Glass Counselling | Bridge the Gap™ provides one-to-one support to individuals who are affected by disordered eating and eating disorders. Counselling is delivered by practicum students from accredited B.C. universities. The program is open to B.C. residents aged 19 and older.
