Romina Scaramagli

About Me – I am an accredited psychotherapist in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and an EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner with The EMDR Association. I have over 20 years experience working in mental health in the NHS, first as a mental health nurse, then a psychotherapist.

Therapies I Offer

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – CBT is a well researched, evidence based, talking therapy.

In CBT we are particularly interested in thoughts (cognitions), feelings and behaviours and believe the way we are thinking impacts on how we are feeling and behaving. We can get trapped in vicious cycles of unhelpful thoughts and behaviours which then impact how we are feeling.

CBT helps you identify these cycles, evaluate them and explore if there are alternative more helpful perspectives and behaviours. It is a myth that CBT is just about positive thinking. One of the aims of CBT is to help people become their own therapist. CBT is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) for numerous mental health difficulties.

For more information on CBT please have a look at the BABCP website – https://www.babcp.com/Public/What-is-CBT.aspx

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy – EMDR is also a well researched, evidence based and recommended treatment by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Although it is most well known for treating PTSD, EMDR can also help with a range of mental health difficulties including traumas, OCD, anxiety, phobias and depression, that have been triggered by witnessing or experiencing a traumatic or distressing event.

When we experience a traumatic event, our brain can struggle to process the experience in the same way that we process everyday memories. As a result the memory can feel stuck, causing flashbacks and re-experiencing images, sounds, feelings and sensations from the event. All of this can cause a person to feel extremely distressed, anxious and depressed.

EMDR uses eye movements to help stimulate the left and right sides of the brain. This helps to process the traumatic memory so it no longer feels current or recent and fades into the background which can then allow a person to move on with their lives. For more information on EMDR please have a look at the EMDR Association website – https://emdrassociation.org.uk

Compassion Focused Therapy – CFT was developed to help with mental health difficulties that are particularly affected and maintained by self criticism, self blame and feelings of shame and guilt. CFT incorporates aspects of CBT and mindfulness as well as evolutionary, developmental and social psychology.

My Approach

Given the right set of circumstances any of us could experience mental health difficulties. Life can be joyful, but at times can be incredibly stressful. We can experience traumas and adverse life events which can significantly impact our mental health and lives. There are so many factors that can influence how we are thinking, feeling and behaving, causing us to feel unwell and overwhelmed & in need of help and support.

At these times, having a safe therapeutic space in which to start to understand how we are thinking, feeling and behaving can help us to start to make changes and move forward. In therapy you can learn new skills and ways of understanding yourself that can help you to feel more stable and in control of your mental health and life.

Reviews
“I have been seeing Pippa periodically over the past 5 years, initially suffering from a debilitating sleeping problem. Having spent months taking sleeping tablets and doing everything that the doctors suggested I do to alleviate this problem; I was no further forth and had reached breaking point. My initial meeting with Pippa was reassuring, supportive and above all gave me tremendous hope for eliminating my current issues. Needless to say, I after a few sessions, I now manage my sleep very well. I am now a regular visitor to Pippa, amongst other things she has the greatest ability to calm my nerves, help me to stay focused and positive on whatever emotional and physical issues that are thrown my way. My most recent appointments have been around fertility issues which she has helped me over come and given me the strength, encouragement and belief that I could get pregnant…..I am currently expecting! I cannot speak or recommend more highly Pippa King she has been so influential in my life, giving me the tools that allow me to resolve and conquer my emotional and physical problems.”

Sally Allardyce

Couples & Individual Counselling

I am an experienced counsellor working with individual and couples. I use warmth, compassion, honesty, and empathy within our counselling relationship, and I will support you to explore the potential for changes in your life.

I have lots of experience of working with adults seeking help and support with a range of issues including anxiety, abuse, trauma, self-esteem, depression and relationship difficulties.

Issues that indicate that you will benefit from seeing a couples counsellor are:

* Difficulties communicating what you need

* Trust has been broken

* Arguments are becoming more frequent

* Emotional intimacy is gone or reduced

* Physical intimacy is difficult

* Walking on eggshells, afraid to speak


I offer space for you and your partner to explore any issues within your relationship. We will work together to increase the communication and connection between you.


Couples counselling helps you to recognise and resolve potential conflict and improve your relationship.

Outside of work, I have a dog (Lilly the beagle, now 12 years old) that needs lots of walks to work off her energy. I enjoy baking, I always make too much, so others do benefit. I find being outside is the best therapy for me, listening, smelling, simply being still, and we live in the best county for this.

Any questions please contact me

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR COLON HYDROTHERAPY

 

What should you not do before colon hydrotherapy?

There are no specific guidelines to follow prior to colon hydrotherapy. However, to make the treatment more comfortable it is advisable to avoid eating a large meal immediately beforehand. Try to avoid eating red meat, sugar, processed/ fried food and wheat products and drinking coffee and alcohol, due to the inflammatory and toxifying effect they have on the body.

 

How will I feel after the treatment?

Following the treatment, some people feel a burst of energy and others feel extremely tired. Both of these extremes are completely normal, and can often be indicative of your general toxic load and the current state of your health. Some people may feel ‘crampy’ abdominal sensations – again, this is dependant on your nutrition, metabolism and current state of health. An aftercare sheet with what to expect following the treatment and some suggestions will be given on the first appointment.

It is possible to go to work following the treatment, but best practice is to have a restful remainder of the day.

Is the procedure painful?

It is not painful. Some patients can feel discomfort or unfamiliar feelings when the muscles of the colon contract – this just feels like cramping or gas with pressure in the rectum, and is completely normal. These feelings usually precede a big release of accumulated waste and patients feel better once the waste is eliminated  Most of the time people experience a light and empty feeling afterwards.

Is it safe to have colon hydrotherapy during menstruation?

Yes. In fact, colon hydrotherapy can be very good during this time as it will help decrease the cramps and bloating often associated with menstruation.

 

How many treatments will I need?

This will depend on your own personal health needs. You know your body better than anyone. You will know when/ if you will need another treatment.

 

Does colon hydrotherapy wipe away all the gut microbiome?

If your bowel is toxic (through poor diet, antibiotic use and other lifestyle factors) you will have little or no good intestinal flora to begin with. Unlike your blood, which needs to be slightly alkaline, your digestive system actually needs stomach acids to function optimaly (a pH of 5.5-7.0 for the large intestine). The helpful bacteria can only lie in an acidic environment whereas the harmful ones thrive in an alkaline environment. Years of poor nutrition, lack of exercise and poor elimination contributes to an alkaline colon A series of colon hydrotherapy treatments can help change the gut environment from alkaline to acid.

 

Does colon hydrotherapy help you lose weight?

Colon hydrotherapy is not part of a weight loss regime. Some patients lose weight and some can gain. It is all about fluid balance and will reset in a couple of days. However, many people use the treatment as a ‘reset’ as the cleansing of the large intestine allows them to start fresh and eat healthier food.

Vanessa Phillips

Counsellor for Children, Young People and Adults.

Are you feeling the need for support for yourself, your child or young person?

Fully inclusive, accessible counselling is available with me for children over 8 years, young people and adults alike.

I am qualified to offer talking therapy or bring in creativity if that suits yourself or your child/young person.

If symptoms of anxiety and low mood are causing daily life to become difficult, I offer a safe, private space to look into the cause and find a way forward. I am willing to explore the effects of traumatic events from both the past and the present with no judgement. If there has been a bereavement I can give support, enabling the grief to feel a little more comfortable. If relationships are strained and creating friction and confusion, we can come together to try to work things out.

Parents of children and young people will be required to be present for an initial assessment appointment and either wait in the reception area or in the carpark area for the ongoing process of therapy.

I am a mum of two adolescents; one is neurodivergent. As well as my private practice, I volunteer for Penhaligon’s Friends charity for bereaved children.

Isi Murray DipCBH, CHFP

She helps her clients to live their best life, realising their potential, reaching their goals and being the person they wish to be, even when, at first, they are not sure what that best ‘them’ may look like.

As a registered, professional Clinical Hypnotherapist, Isi works with you as a team to bring about the
changes you want or need and gets your mind working for you instead of against you. Your
mind is your most powerful tool but even the best made tools in the world need care and
maintenance to get the best out of them and keep them in good condition. The wear and
tear of life, our surroundings and those in it, can take their toll on the natural harmony
between mind and body and result in, amongst other things, chronic pain, anxiety, stress,
depression, trauma, irrational fears or a loss of confidence and self-worth.

When working towards your future, you will be met with a non-judgmental, honest and warm approach.
Isi combines a broad base of therapeutic and hypnosis styles tailored to your specific needs,
putting you front and centre of your own journey.

If you are looking to start a family, struggling with fertility issues, sexual issues, wanting to
remain in control and calm during birth or not settling easily into parenthood, then Isi can
support you throughout and help you build the right mindset to be in the best possible state
to enjoy this experience in your life. If, on the other hand, your world has taken a turn
towards illness, she will be there on that journey with you, alongside your medical team,
working with your pain and coping strategies, freeing your mind to focus on what’s
important.
