Initial consultation and therapy
During your first session we will discuss your difficulties and the reasons why you are seeking help. This is a one hour session and the fee is set at £25. This session will also be an opportunity for you to talk about what your expectations are for therapy and to look at some of your medical history/ profile. The initial session is also for me to decide whether I think I can offer you the help you need or whether I think that you might be better helped by another therapist or organisation, in which case I will discuss this with you. If we agree to work together then we will discuss arrangements for ongoing sessions. There may be times when therapy seems difficult and you wish to discontinue. It can be beneficial to work through these challenges; however, if either you or I, think it is time to end the therapy, then we will agree on a mutual time to finish. If you foresee that you may need to terminate your therapy sessions please try and give me as much notice as possible.

GP CONFIDENTIALITY AND SERVICE
All information provided through this website is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between the service user and his/her family doctor or GP. I do seek the consent of service users before contacting their GP. I take confidentiality seriously, and endeavour to respect this for service users. However, in the event that I consider that there is a threat to the Client or a third party’s safety during the provision of the Services, I reserve the right to contact the Client’s GP and disclose such Information to the GP as I deem necessary in order to protect the Client or a third party’s safety. The parties agree to keep confidential any and all information concerning each other whether disclosed in writing, verbally or in relation to the matters provided for in these Conditions (“the Information”). The parties further agree in particular not to disclose all or any part of that Information to any third party (except the Psychologist or as may be required by mandatory rule of law or order of court of competent jurisdiction or as required for performance of their obligations under these Conditions).
Alfredo Procaccini is not an emergency mental health service, and neither does it provide 24 hour cover. Therefore, I cannot offer support for service users who are experiencing current suicidal thoughts, psychotic impulses, or other symptoms that would reflect acute and severe mental disturbance. In these instances, service users are advised to make urgent contact with their GP (or 999 in any emergency), who would be in a position to advice.
BOOKING – PAYMENT – CANCELLATION
If you wish to arrive earlier than your appointment time, there is a waiting room area. Please do not arrive intoxicated (no alcohol or drugs, other than prescribed drugs). Please don’t arrive late as I regret that I cannot make up time. In the event of a cancellation please refer to charges and payments. Alfredo Procaccini apologises for the late cancellation fees, but trusts service users will understand that appointments cannot be used by others, when they are cancelled at short notice. Payments are to be collected at each session and may be made by cash, cheque, PayPal, bank-to-bank transfer or credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Solo, Maestro or Delta only).
