The Looking Glass Foundation for Eating Disorders offers a FREE on-line Support Group service where people can come together in a safe space to support each other and chat.

How much you want to talk is up to you! You can just listen, or you can share your thoughts and feelings as you feel comfortable. The group does not discuss weight, diet, food or behaviours, to keep the environment safe.

About the Support Groups:

  • they offer an innovative vehicle for support.
  • they are not location specific and can be accessed from the comfort of your own home.
  • they are anonymous and confidential.
  • physical preconceptions or comparisons are not permitted.
  • they provide an additional opportunity to take the first step towards help.
  • one to two trained facilitators keep the sessions supportive and safe for everyone.
     

Anyone living with or affected by an eating disorder is welcome. Sessions are held:
Tuesdays 7:30 - 9:00 p.m. and 10:30 - 12:00 a.m. EST
Thursdays 7:30 - 9:00 p.m. and 10:30 - 12:00 a.m. EST

An ongoing support group for parents, spouses and other family members involved with loved ones struggling with disordered eating.  Eating disorders do not only affect the person struggling, but also their loved ones.

Hope's Garden Challenging ED Support Group with Trisha Wedemire, MSW, RSW

Location: 478 Waterloo Street, London, ON

Dates: Thursdays

Time: 6:30 - 8:00 p.m.

Fee: $5 per session or $20 for 5 sessions if paid in advance

This group is open to anyone 18+ who is interested in recovering from an eating disorder.  Those who attend Challenging ED are looking for freedom from a life of inner conflict and obsession with food and body image.  This group will help participants work towards replacing self-criticism with self-acceptance.  Participants will learn tools to help them create a positive, healing relationship with food and with their bodies.  Participants may not always feel completely confident in keeping from disordered thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors with food, but are committed to trying.  This group talks openly about the behaviors and sizes being left behind, and is not always comfortable for those who are still deeply involved with their eating disorder.  For more information, please visit http://www.hopesgarden.org/programs/support-groups.
