Ian Parker is a practising psychoanalyst. He trained with the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research (CFAR) in London, and became an Analyst of the Centre in 2003. He is registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). He is also a member of the London Society of the New Lacanian School and of the College of Psychoanalysts – UK.

Lacanian psychoanalysis is a ‘talking cure’ that developed in the tradition of Freud’s invention of the unconscious. Lacan’s work is resistant to attempts to normalise certain kinds of experience or pathologise others. It does not aim to adapt people to society but to allow truth to be spoken.

Ian works as a psychoanalyst in south Manchester. He can be contacted to discuss beginning psychoanalysis via the contact page.
