ABOUT TRUE GROWTH - Because your Story Matters
At True Growth we offer a confidential and professional counselling service for adults, teenagers and children. With over 16 years' experience in the counselling field, we are passionate about mental health. Services include an outpatient addiction program, couple counselling, trauma counselling, divorce, single parenting, grief counselling, stress management, anger management, Trisomy 13 and 18 as well as career assessment.
We are affiliated with Addiction Recovery Pretoria and together we offer an affordable and professional outpatient addiction program (minimum 12 weeks).
Appointments are on average 51-60 minutes long. During the first session the client and the counsellor will agree how they will work together. If you feel uncertain about whether counselling is right for you, you are welcome to attend an initial session, with no obligation to commit to further sessions. Online and face to face services are available.
In some circumstance, we may feel that clients presenting with more specialised needs may find more appropriate care through another service or medical professional. If this is the case - we will talk this through with you - and we will make a referral. True Growth is proud to be one of Bestmed Medical Aid's preferred providers and we are contracted in with most medical aids.

HPCSA REGISTERED COUNSELLOR, LIFE COACH AND INTERNATIONAL LIFE COACH TUTOR
My name is Quinton Mundell. I have an honours degree in Psychology. I am a registered counsellor, life coach and an international life coach tutor. I was trapped in my own rigid thinking and stagnant behaviour patterns for many years. Life threw several curve balls at me, which created within me a desire to escape my own emotional pain, and in return help others who might feel the same. I have worked with so many individuals, groups, and families with their own battles. Throughout my journey I stayed committed to reach my end goal. My belief and commitment in my clients gave them the strength to stay committed to reach their end goals in life which brought so much joy in my life knowing I could make difference in someone’s life.
