Giuseppe Parziale is Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with an extensive clinical background in Psychology from Italy. He is currently completing his final semester of practicum for the Master Degree in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. Giuseppe’s level of education from Italy entails: Bachelor of Science in Psychobiology and Cognitive Psychology and Master of Science in Cognitive Psychology and Neuroscience from the University of Padua, a post-graduate diploma in Forensic Science from CIELS campus affiliated with the University of Padua. He received a full equivalency of his foreign studies through the School of Continuing Studies at the University of Toronto. Furthermore, he is currently studying for the Clinical Traumatologist designation at the Traumatology Institute of Toronto, directed by Dr. Anna Baranowski. Since 2016, Giuseppe is general member of the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP – former OACCPP). Giuseppe also holds a varied range of certificates of specialization and workshops regarding the areas of Trauma, Substance Abuse and counselling for First Responders. Giuseppe’s vocational history as a Mental Health Professional begins in Italy: working for different public and non-profit agencies, local correction departments, as intern at the Criminal Psychiatric Hospital of Castiglione delle Stiviere, residential counsellor for youth at risk, project manager for Respite programs. Upon his arrival in Canada in 2014, Giuseppe continued to follow his professional calling by working within the area of Mental Health in Canada. He has covered different clinical roles as a psychometrist with MVA population, residential and intake coordinator for individuals who have struggled with addiction, project manager for the Neurologic Rehabilitation Institute of Ontario (Bayshore – formerly NRIO)

While Giuseppe’s clinical practice is shaped by foundational principles of Psychodynamic and trauma-focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT), he firmly believes on an integrated and eclectic clinical approach that is tailored on the individual’s needs. Therapeutic goals are established within a collaborative, non judgmental and empathetic framework, since the therapist and the client are both “fellow travelers” – Irvin D. Yalom (2017). Indeed, within the therapy room, Giuseppe also uses principles of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Attachment Theory, Narrative Therapy (NT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). Furthermore, he often uses metaphors which has been used as an empowering tool, positive and pragmatic way for clients to express their experiences (Kopp, 2013).

Working within the Mental Health field has been a vocational calling for Giuseppe, as he strives to systematically carry forward to the profession an immersive level of commitment and dedication. As a Trauma Informed and Client-centered therapist, for the last decade, Trauma and Substance Abuse have been areas of specialization but not limited to where Giuseppe has been able to compassionately encourage and empathetically support clients to move throughout the stages of uncomfortable change, and ultimately reconnect with themselves and others. Giuseppe has been helping a different array of clinical populations, working with individuals who has struggled with Depression, Anxiety, Childhood Trauma, Borderline Personality Disorder, Grief, Substance Abuse and Maladaptive Coping, Suicidal Ideation, Vocational and Relational obstacles, Stress Management, Anger Management and Self-Esteem issues. Moreover, for the last 4 years Giuseppe has tenaciously supported First Responders to navigate through the horrific memories that trauma disorders as PTSD can leave behind, and helped them to “rekindle” what that they thought was lost.

Giuseppe firmly believes that traumatic experiences have not taken away the individual’s authenticity, but made its access more challenging. Giuseppe will support you to “rekindle” your authentic self and facilitate a space to hold you apart of your journey.
