Chief Executive Officer  E Squared Investments

“I am writing to wholeheartedly endorse Warren Munitz and Integrative Coaching, for their exceptional coaching and people development services. My professional journey intersected with Warren’s expertise during a crucial phase of my career. As I was navigating the complexities of executive roles and seeking avenues for personal and professional growth, Warren emerged as an invaluable partner in this transformative process.

Warren’s coaching methodology is rooted in a profound understanding of inner peace, balance, and fulfilment in both personal and professional spheres. His approach goes beyond traditional coaching; he combines business acumen with emotional intelligence to offer tailored guidance that addresses both professional challenges and personal well-being. Through insightful questioning and thoughtful analysis, Warren adeptly helped me identify areas of improvement and offered actionable strategies to address them.

Under Warren’s mentorship, I embarked on an “inner work journey” that transcended conventional leadership training. He introduced me to mindfulness practices, such as meditation and journaling, which significantly enhanced my self-awareness and emotional resilience. These practices not only enriched my personal life but also contributed to a more reflective and effective leadership style.

The tangible results of Warren’s coaching are evident in my career trajectory. The techniques and insights I gained enabled me to work diligently, modify behaviours, and successfully secure a promotion to the position of CEO at E Squared Investments. Moreover, the impact of Warren’s coaching extends beyond individual growth, therefore, I have referred several executives to Integrative Coaching, both within E Squared and externally, further attesting to the value and effectiveness of their services.

In summary, Warren Munitz is an great coach who possesses a unique combination of expertise, empathy, and insight. His ability to empower individuals to unlock their full potential is truly commendable. I am confident that Warren and Integrative Coaching will deliver exceptional value to your organisation, enabling you to achieve new heights of success.”

Keith Thompson

Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder at Sendmarc

“I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Warren, my executive coach from Integrative Coaching, whose guidance has been invaluable in my professional and personal development.


I initially chose Integrative Coaching after a thorough search and several interviews with potential coaches. Warren stood out due to his calm demeanour and his thoughtful approach, which made me feel immediately connected and understood. His ability to resonate with my goals and provide tailored support was precisely what I was looking for.

Since working with Warren, I have seen significant improvements in my ability to manage a previously chaotic work life.

He has introduced structure and provided tools that have not only helped manage demanding workloads but also reduced anxiety. This newfound efficiency has allowed me to accomplish more and deliver work of a higher quality than ever before.


I wholeheartedly recommend Warren and Integrative Coaching to anyone looking for a professional and personalized coaching experience. The trust and rapport that Warren builds with his clients are what sets him apart, making each session both productive and reassuring.”

Cindy Nell-Roberts

“I have found the Warren Munitz’ cnline course to be very beneficial in my personal life and professional life, and even as a mother. The illustrations combined with audio are insightful, and q personal growth and meditation online course is convenient for my busy life, especially in times where I am not able to see my professional life coach one on one.

I find it keeps me grounded, improves my decision making in general, and gives me a more holistic approach to my personal life.

Spending a few minutes in my course daily, or even weekly clears out a lot of the clutter from my mind, and is helping me to relax more, focus more, achieve the quality meaningful life I aspire too, and move to the next level of my life.”

Manuel Koser

Founding Partner of Silvertree Capital and Co-founder of Zando

“Warren’s approach continues to have an extremely positive and lasting impact on my mind and in my life. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to learn how to manage their stress, expand their awareness of the inner dimension, experience inner peace and experience enlightenment.”

Aisha Pandor

Co-founder and CEO of Pandora Biosciences & Pandora Health | Co-founder of SweepSouth | Founding Partner at E4E Africa VC

“Working with Warren has been a life changing experience, and has felt like a secret advantage at a time when I’ve really needed to show up for family, employees, shareholders and other stakeholders, not to mention myself. His approach helps you find an unending source of inner strength, happiness and compassion, which is something we could all do with. His coaching enables you to work through unresolved issues which may be blockers, and to live out a life of purpose and better fulfilment of your true potential. My relationships and life outlook have all changed for the better, and I’ve referred friends, family and peers to Warren, to experience this amazing shift for themselves.”

Clive Roberts

Director – GoodClean BeautCO

“As an entrepreneur and business leader, Warrens executive coaching has had a significant positive impact on my business and personal life.

I have been seeing Warren for a number of years and the time I have spent with him has opened my mind to new perspectives, which has significantly aided my decision-making process. Without these extra perspectives on complex situations, my decision-making process would have been severely hampered, and not allowing me to see solutions from all the angles.

The knock effects of making the right decision at the “infliction points” in a company’s life are incalculable. Warren’s executive coaching has without doubt aided me in these moments.

He has helped increase my awareness, allowing me to see opportunities more clearly when they present themselves. Opportunities that I might otherwise have missed, the cost of which cannot be calculated.

He has considerably aided in my ability to communicate openly and clearly with staff and business colleagues. Which had allowed me to find the motivational “trigger points” for my senior management, and subsequently considerably aided my business’s efficiency, productivity, and profitability.

Corporate and entrepreneurial life can be a lonely place, while one carries the burden of responsibilities. My time with Warren has allowed me to recognize that this loneliness needn’t be a burden, but rather an opportunity to clearly think about and consider important decisions.

Warrens insight and deep understanding of the working of the human mind, have allowed me to have a clearer understanding of how to motivate staff and inspirer my senior management to find innovative solutions to business problems, allowing me to be a better leader, and drive my companies towards success.

Warrens insights and appreciation of how we think, has added me in my decision-making process, and has allowed me to make the right decisions at the right time with clarity and confidence.


Warren is a remarkable and inspiring executive coach, and I cannot recommend him more highly to any business leader.”

“Life changing experience. Eyes wide open. A deep thank you to Warren and the team at Integrative Coaching.”

Amanda Bullmore

Head of Talent & Employee Experience at JUMO.WORLD

“I was drawn to this coach training programme following my own transformational journey with Integrative Coaching. I experienced first-hand the coaching approach and was fascinated by the transformation it had in all areas of my life.

Through this programme I have discovered so much more about myself, my relationships with others, how to realise my own potential and how to help others realise their potential. The structure and content of this course is unlike any others, and because of this, it has been instrumental in developing my capacity and capability to become a professional life coach.”

K.G

Director

Each of us plays our own game.  So, is it really possible to find a coach to guide us on this complex playing field that we call life?  The answer is yes; but there are very few coaches that can guide in a non-judgmental, open and person-centred way.  I have really enjoyed and grown with Warren’s thoughtful guidance.  His approach clearly comes from years of experience and having travelled the same path that he is so adept at navigating.  Through Warren’s prompting and curiosity, he has helped me to reveal many aspects of my thinking and perception that otherwise would have remained hidden. Thank you Warren for your insights and wisdom.

Alberta Coetzee

Systems Analyst, Woolworths ITS

“Most of my life I perceived the world around me as cold, indifferent and hostile. I felt alone and scared most of the time. I did not feel that I belong in this world, being alive. I have tried very hard to make my life better and to make my sadness go away. My father tried to medicate me without success. I tried introspection on my own, but it felt like was going in circles of judgment, shame and guilt. I started to see a psychiatrist and psychologist and found some medication that seemed to work for me on certain levels, but still, the empty void got worse and worse. Aftera couple years of seeking medical treatment my doctors were happy with my progress and suggested that I can continue with the medication on my own.

I had  joint intentions behind finding a life coach, one was to advance my career after I completed my MBA and did not see the results I was looking for and secondly I hoped that my depression can be treated too. “Life Coaching” was a new buzz word 6 years ago, so I did some research and came across Warren’s website. 

We all identify with a state of being. My label was depression. I felt worthless and thought my father did not love me and did not want to be with me.  It felt valued and that my existence matters only when I performed well. I lived with a deep underlying sadness and my emotions oscillated between the little joys of success and my shameful failures. This oscillating emotion was very hurtful, so I guess I tried to escape it by labelling myself as depressed and that there was something wrong with me I had to fix.

As my sessions with Warren evolved I realized the extent of my attachment to sadness and that it is only a symptom of a deeper dysfunctional cause. With self-discovery and realization, I found my true worth. My depression and sadness lessened and I stopped medication a couple of years ago. I don’t strive for perfection anymore. Warren is passionate and extremely patient. He showed me that the path is all about acceptance of my perceived childhood, my identifications, my attachment and my fear of facing my emotions and the truth.

Warren has real-world wisdom and impeccable work ethic. He has a rare ability with his coaching to make the obscure a reality for his clients and a pragmatic way. Warren takes full accountability in his coaching methods and techniques. I experience Warren as no non-judgemental, accommodating and I feel unconditionally inclusive in our sessions. Warren enables me and he teaches me coping skills that by far exceed my fear of letting go.  Warren has an enormous wealth of knowledge, but never gives advice or steer me in a direction, he facilitates a safe space where I can discover myself. 

I discovered how to accept the ups and downs of life by bringing my shadow side into the light.  I know now my life is in my own hands and with the right support structures, anything is possible. I no longer work from a space of resisting fear, but being open and embracing my fear on my journey towards wholeness. In this instantaneous world of self-gratification, I discovered that it is only in being authentic, that I can get access to my true emotions, anger, pain, sadness, and joy. With that came the understanding of facing my truth, reality and the structures I unconsciously put in place to cope as a child.

With Warren’s passionate and truthful guidance, I gained access to a part of me I forgot existed. I realized that a lifelong journey of self-discovery takes a lot of courage, patience, dedication, and trust. One of my biggest challenges was to set up my meditation discipline and practice. I think it is mostly because meditation can be a very doubting and daunting experience. It is during these times that I realized how important support structures are.

I would like to introduce you to a new course that Warren recently put together. Unfortunately, I did not have the luxury of meditation support on this level when I started out, but now you do. I enrolled in this course a while ago and think the content is brilliantly put together. I already see the great value of this course to the extent that it has become an absolute necessity to me.

If you are ready to look past your own reflection inwards and deepen your spiritual practice, this is your opportunity for someone to take your hand during this long and hard road that lies ahead of us. Please consider enrolling and give yourself the learning experience you so greatly deserve. 

Thanks”

Emmanuelle Gille

Chief Director of Institutional Development & Support Technical Consulting Services

“The coaching I received from Warren has led to the deepest and most meaningful introspection to date (I am not that young, so had tried a few times before), and to sweeping changes in my approach to life. This is no ordinary coaching where you are given tools and advice to deal with issues, case by case. This is an all-encompassing approach. My conversations with Warren and the generous guidance I received have radically changed my mental map. I am now aware that I am not alone facing the world. I am in the world, living life. I am connected at the core of myself, with the source of life, infinite, generous, compassionate, and with no judgment. The daily meditation practice becomes essential. It helps you reach the depths of your subconscious and beyond to tackle any perceived problems as they arise.”

Anke Becker

Integrative Coach & NueroPhysics Therapist

“I initially started sessions with Warren because I had come to an end in the road, I could no longer help myself and everything I had tried was proving futile. A friend recommended Warren to me and I figured I had nothing to lose. All I knew was that I needed to change beliefs, behaviours and the trajectory I was on and I didn’t know how to do that on my own.

The moment I had my first session with Warren I knew that this was the path I wanted to walk. The one that was meant for me. Not only personally, but as a professional. I could really make a difference in the lives of others if I trained to be a coach with Warren.

Warrens’ course content is very thorough – it is in line with a university degree in my opinion. Covering topics such as psychology and philosophy and exploring other alternative therapies such as meditation and hypnotherapy that can be incorporated into coaching.

I did sessions with Warren for years as part of my self-development journey and my coach training (practical hours). You have to do the work yourself in order to fully understand what it takes to dedicate yourself to this journey – only then will you fully understand where your clients are coming from and where they are going. Only then can you fully show up for them and be there for them.

I use my integrative training in all areas of my life, not only in a client-coach setting. It flows into my personal relationships, work relationships and has had a visible impact on the quality of my everyday life.”

Barry Nortje

Integrative Coach

“I highly recommend undertaking the coaching training as it will completely change your life. Warren and supporting coaches will guide and hold space for you whilst you learn how to navigate your conscious and unconscious mind, which will allow you to alleviate suffering as well as set yourself free from the past – mental structures, stored emotions or past events that keep repeating themselves in your mind. The training is not easy as you’re having to face yourself, come to terms with how much you’re projecting onto others, build a relationship with emotions and integrate subject matter by letting go of past versions of yourself. Whilst this is taxing and very challenging, it is well worth it if you want to live the best life possible.”

Greg Nafte

Director – Nexus Property Group

“I was referred to Warren by a good friend living in Canada. It so happened that we live in the same city. He coached me through a very challenging period and taught me methods to problem solve through self-reflection and which I now practice in every area of my life.”

Sean Ravenhill

Graphic Designer

“I came to Warren not knowing what to expect, all I knew was that I was having major difficulty navigating my life, emotions, and career and that I needed some help. With Warren’s guidance and coaching, I’ve been able to recognize parts of me that I did not even realize I have been resisting. Warren has helped guide me on the first steps of a great journey to what I believe is the path of a much happier and harmonious life and helped me to recognize the tools to do this have existed within me all this time.”

Candice Adams

ICT Education Specialist and Education Consultant

Dear Barry,

I wanted to take a moment to express my utmost appreciation and gratitude for the incredible guidance and support you have provided me as my life coach. Working with you has been a transformative experience that has had a profound impact on my personal and professional growth.

From the very first session, I was impressed by your calm nature, professionalism, compassion, and ability to create a safe and nonjudgmental space for self-reflection. Your expertise in coaching and deep understanding of human behaviour allows me to explore my thoughts, emotions, and aspirations with clarity, self-acceptance and self-love.

Throughout our coaching journey, you have consistently demonstrated a remarkable ability to listen attentively and ask thought-provoking questions that cause me to visualize how it is, how it can be and then lean into what it feels like to find healing and liberation. Words can hardly explain it, but your insightful guidance and constructive feedback have challenged me to dig deeper, recognise limiting beliefs, and develop practices to overcome obstacles in such a simplistic way. Your authentic approach has instilled a newfound sense of self-belief and empowerment within me.

Thank you, I am grateful, and I am genuinely looking forward to the journey.

Sanja Lutzeyer

CEO / Director of Play Into Your Greatness & Integrative Coach

Integrative Coaching has in all ways exceeded my expectations.

As a client, their service has always been extremely professional, kind, efficient and compassionate and I always felt cared for in every interaction. I have been coached by Spiro, Barry and Warren – all of which have really helped me to grow as a human being and expand my capacity to navigate my life. Their coaching has brought me greater joy, freedom, trust in- and understanding of my Self. I will always be grateful to them.

As an Integrative Coaching student, I can also highly recommend their training. When I first looked at coach trainings, I was told that I should definitely get a certification from a university. Having spent so much time at universities, however, I knew that I was looking for a school where my learning would not be cerebral. I had spent most of my life developing my rational capacities and I wanted to find a school where I could learn to deepen my abilities to obtain wisdom from the rest of my body. My heart, my gut – and, my soul.

I am SO SO glad that I decided to learn with Integrative Coaching as it has been one of the deepest, most rewarding journeys I have taken in my life. I learnt to coach not from my head, but from a place of intuition and knowing. I also had the opportunity to really grow as a human being, through two years of rigorous training. I had done a lot of personal development in my life, and yet nothing can really compare with a two-year journey with the Integrative Coaching team. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Consulting services: Project Management – Principle Lead

“I reached out to IC as I was looking for coaching, specifically around dealing with stress and anxiety management. I was put in touch with Spiro who over a course of a few weeks had assisted me in identifying some root cause issues which had negative impacts on my overall life. We then started working on those items in practical ways and within a short space of time started seeing changes in my life and general approach to handling difficult and stressful situations. I honestly felt I was speaking to close friend who was honest and non judgemental. I have gained a new confidence which allows me to manage myself and my environment so much better.”

Matt Sutcliffe

Senior Engagement Lead –  MOHARA

Barry has changed my life. His ability to listen, advise and hold space for me (and I assume all of his clients) has allowed me to see the world through different lenses. I’m more intrigued by failure, feel more courageous to deal with difficult situations and excited to follow the flow of my life than I ever was before.

George Stander

“With Warren’s guidance, I was able to encounter and discuss my deepest vulnerabilities without fear of judgment. Helping me to confront deep-seated beliefs with compassion and patience, Warren cultivated a space of immense trust. Warren does not believe in quick fixes, his method is real, raw, and life-changing – reaching into every aspect of your life. My view of the world and my place in it has completely changed for the better. I am immensely grateful for Warren and will forever cherish our sessions, it has been one of the best investments I have ever made.”

Hettie le Grange

“I am working as an Occupational health Nurse in a Mine. My main responsibility is to manage the Clinic but also to ensure that a high quality service are rendered to the Client.

My management is more concerned about the expenses than quality. That is the reason why we are in a constant conflict.I need to do the extra work and they are not willing to appoint trained managers.


With the help of Spiro I could face different conflict situations without backing out before they could see the real situation.

Thank you Spiro for teaching me to believe in myself and that I need to go on not for myself but also for the people that are working with me.”

Wade Corbin April

Senior Engineer – John Paul Construction

I’ve been stuck spinning my wheels for years trying to figure out ‘what is wrong with me’ & how to ‘fix myself’ but could never quite ‘accomplish’ It.
 
From our very first session, Barry has pulled me out of the mud, dusted me off and has pointed me in the right direction. I have experienced real lasting improvement in my Life, self-worth, relationships and work thanks to his intuitive yet systematic & no-BS yet humorous approach.
 
Investing in Barry sooner would’ve saved me a lot of time, going in circles, but I believe that the Master appeared when this Student was ready.
 
Much appreciation to the Life changing work that Barry Nortje and the Integrative coaching team are doing.

Gabriella Wypkema

Buying Intern – Under Armour

“I have been doing coaching with Spiro for almost four years.

The coaching has helped me navigate through difficult and fundamental transitional periods in my life, such as adjusting to life in the pandemic, deciding to pursue my studies and transitioning from studying into work.

Spiro has taught me the importance of remaining in the present moment through breathing, meditating and being mindful in order to live a more fruitful life.

The coaching has provided me with the opportunity to obtain advice when needed, a space to be quiet when a break from the “outside” world feels necessary, as well as solving any problem areas in my life which I may feel needs to be worked on.

I have thus far found that the sessions have been incredibly beneficial to me both in the moment and in providing me with the tools to help myself when I do not have access to professional help.

I am incredibly grateful for Spiro and for all that he has taught me. I do not feel that I could have gotten a better coach. I do not see our journey together ending any time soon and I highly recommend him to anyone in need!”

Nompumelelo Mbatha

Business Analyst – ABSA

“I’m really greatful I got the chance to work with Spiro Yaffes. He helped me feel that my feelings are valid. That helped me to start the process of coming to terms with a lot of things. I’m feeling much lighter since our sessions.”

Eva Moloi

Human Capital and Transformation Manager – DAMEN SHIPYARDS

Hi Barry,

I wanted to take a moment to reach out and express the depth of my gratitude for the transformative work you have done in my life over the past several months. Though our journey together may have ended abruptly, I believe that everything happens for a reason, and I am immensely grateful for the impact you’ve had on me.

It is no exaggeration to say that you have helped me tremendously in numerous ways, and I witness the fruits of your guidance and support every single day. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you for creating a safe space that allowed me to tap into parts of myself I didn’t even know existed. Through your coaching, I discovered a level of patience I never thought possible. I learned to embrace empathy and connect with others on a deeper level. Most importantly, I realized that it is perfectly okay to experience and acknowledge my emotions without fear or judgment. I discovered the power of acceptance, realizing that some experiences don’t require fixing—they are simply part of the tapestry of life.

The true impact of your coaching became evident when I returned to work and faced challenges that previously would have triggered me. I was amazed to find that I approached these obstacles with a newfound sense of calm and resilience. The panic and anxiety that once consumed me were replaced with a composed determination to tackle each challenge one step at a time. This transformation is a testament to the incredible work we did together.

Please forgive me if my words fall short; I am not typically one to express myself through writing. However, I couldn’t let this opportunity pass without conveying my sincere gratitude.

Always remember that your influence and guidance have had a profound and lasting impact on my life. I am forever grateful for all you have done, and I carry the lessons and growth with me as I navigate my journey.

Wishing you continued success in your coaching endeavours and a life filled with joy and fulfilment.

Sean

CEO – Cash Crusaders

“I have known Spiro for 18 years and in his time as a coach has provided me with sage advice and been a sounding board for enhanced thinking and reframing. It is easy to get stuck when one operates from the C suite but Spiro has a way of delving into the heart of the matter to derive clarity and purpose. I can highly recommend Spiro.”

Hannes Wessels

GM, country head, SA – Binance

Warren’s guidance in developing a meditation and mindfulness practice has been transformative in a number of areas in my life. Finding my centre during the day enables me to make more thoughtful strategic decisions, while having a better developed intuition helps me with faster, tactical decision making.
 
As an amateur cyclist, being able to centre and focus myself while doing endurance training enabled me to develop more sustainable endurance fitness, ultimately having a broader aerobic base from which to develop more anaerobic levels of fitness.
 

Lastly, the ability to access my subconscious and unconscious minds, coupled with accelerated learning techniques, has enabled me to go from an aspiring guitarist with no skills to completing my final (grade 8) practical exam in 2 and a half years.

None of this would have been possible without Warren’s guidance in integrating all these aspects of mindful living into my day to day life. 
 
Thanks Warren
