Business overview

CFAR was founded in 1985 with the aim of promoting and developing psychoanalysis in the United Kingdom from within a Freudian and Lacanian perspective.

The work of the Centre involves the study of psychoanalysis through teaching, seminars and study groups and it trains psychoanalysts within the context of its clinical training programme.

The Centre has a public seminar programme where central issues in psychoanalysis and allied fields are discussed. It welcomes people not registered on its Training Programme to attend these meetings.

Throughout the year CFAR regularly organises seminars given by eminent psychoanalysts from France, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Australia and elsewhere which comprise both theoretical and clinical presentations. These seminars are held in Central London.

Membership of CFAR gives registration with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). CFAR is a UKCP registered training organisation which is authorised to accredit psychoanalysts.

CFAR maintains relations with other training bodies both within the UK and abroad.

Mixed experience

Unfortunately several people left when I was there as they weren't convinced by some of the trainers. Some appeared to have extreme personality issues which were influencing their performance which they seemed to think was desirable, possibly they hadn't been analysed enough. Others were better, so mixed results.
