Roger Fife Psychodynamic psychotherapist , WC1V

Book now

I am an experienced and fully qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist based in Holborn, (right next to Chancery Lane tube) central London. I also offer sessions in N8, North London.


I offer open-ended long term therapy, and I also offer short term therapy (12 sessions).


I offer you a safe, caring and confidential  environment  where we can work together to explore your thoughts and feelings, with the aim of understanding the origins of any emotional difficulties, and gaining relief from emotional and psychological suffering.


I will pay careful attention to whatever you bring to your sessions, in order that we may try to understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and why any of these may be problematic or difficult for you.

Gaining insight into the nature of underlying emotional conflicts can help to bring relief. It can also open up the possibility of no longer repeating unhelpful patterns that previously may have held you back, or caused you distress.


I will work with you so that you can develop new ways of approaching your life that are less affected by old patterns and painful emotions. Gradually working through painful or difficult feelings may bring you more understanding of yourself, and with this you can become more emotionally resilient, and better able to function productively and creatively in your life.
