Guy du Plessis  


I provide strategy and research consulting for mental healthcare  and educational organisations.

My approach is informed by various philosophical perspectives and psychological models. My primary orientation is based on the meta-theoretical and multi-perspectival framework of integral meta-theory, and the moral foundations theory developed by Jonathan Haidt. 

I have provided strategy and research consulting work for the following organisations:

  • I-System Institute for Transdisciplinary Studies, Utah State University
  • Mind-Body Bridging Charity
  • I-System Inc.
  • Quality of Life Park
  • Naminkango Mission Centre
  • Integrated Recovery Institute
  • Ubuntu Community Trust
  • Momentum Mental Healthcare South Africa
  • Rustenburg Addiction Care


Training & Workshops 

I provide individualised training and workshops for healthcare professionals, addictions counsellors, and recovery coaches in applying the Integrated Recovery Modeland Integrated Recovery Meta-therapy in their practice or treatment facility. 

The Integrated Recovery Program is outlined in my book An Integral Guide to Recovery: Twelve Steps and Beyond, and Integrated Recovery Meta-therapy is described in my book An Integral Foundation for Addiction: Beyond the Biopsychosocial Model

Because these approaches applies integral meta-theory therapists, counselors and coaches are provided with a multiperspectival framework that enables them to work in an inclusive and comprehensive manner, while at the same time providing a meta-theoretical and trans-disciplinary orientation.
