About Leslie Chapman

I have been actively involved in the mental health field for over twenty five years, including fifteen years as a psychoanalytic practitioner working within the Lacanian tradition.  I am an Associate Member of the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research (CFAR) and a member of Psychotherapists and Counsellors for Social Responsibility (PCSR).  Since 2012 I have been exploring and developing a range of ideas concerning Lacan’s concept of the Real, and much of this material has been posted on this site.  I have also written a number of articles and papers on a range of topics including IAPT and corporate stress, and contributed to a book on psychoanalysis and statutory regulation.
