William Guri
Counselling psychologist
William Guri

William combines compassion for people and a passion for evidence-based psychological services. He values the unique lived experiences of his patients and reflects on the best practices in the field to provide services in a timely and effective manner.

Position at Priory

William is a counselling psychologist working with the therapy team at Priory, providing cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), group therapy and individual therapy to inpatients and outpatients, face-to-face and online.

Training

William started working with mental health in 2001 while in pastoral ministry. He pursued his passion for working with people experiencing distress and trained as a professional counsellor (2005) and counsellor educator (2015) in the USA. As an international student at Loyola University in Maryland, William was part of the pastoral counselling department that was a national leader in the study and practice of the integration of religion/spirituality and psychology. William is competent to work with both people experiencing religious, spiritual and cultural struggles as part of their mental health challenges and those for whom religion and spirituality are not an issue.

Research interests

William conducted research on the use of trained lay mental health workers in a resource-deprived country to scale up service provision and to bridge the mental health treatment gap. He retains an interest in developing and adapting evidence-based mental health treatments for use in resource-deprived communities and promoting the use of mental health services in communities that are often excluded. Always championing diversity and inclusion, William has recently developed research and practice interests in the areas of neurodiversity, relationship and gender identity diversity.
