A journey to discover your full potential.


Regarding my Body, soul and mind practices, which encourage one to take a holistic approach to health and wellness, I can still do one-on-one Pilates classes and small group TRE classes. We keep a safe distance from each other and practice perfect hygiene.

I can (and usually do) carry out all my other services including life and business coaching, Soul Plan and QEC (Quantum Energy Coaching) online, as well as one-on-one TRE online too. If I can be of any help to you, whether in times of crisis, or simply to help you reach a perfect state of holistic wellness, contact me and let’s talk.

“All that we aspire to be – and much more – is found in the self” – Marléne Nunes

I am Marléne Nunes, the Founder/Owner of ‘Self and more,’ serving businesses and individuals in the Western Cape and beyond. Having suffered and overcome significant setbacks and challenges of my own I believe that knowing who we are, our capabilities and our true life’s purpose are the key to a life of success, optimum health, happiness and real meaning.

Whether it is a workplace team in disarray, a business leader seeking greater leadership qualities, a traumatised or stressed individual, or simply one who is searching for a more meaningful existence, the answer lies in a purposeful and holistic lifestyle that combines body, mind and soul. These are all found in the services I facilitate which include…


“True happiness  is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.” ―Helen Keller


Life coaching is a process where a professional life coach helps to motivate and guide you in order to improve various aspects of your life, including career and relationships.

A reading is extremely powerful and transformation. It helps heals obstacles to achieving full potential and provides a clear path forward.

Pilates is a form of exercise that helps promote and improve physical strength, posture, body sensing, mindful movements, muscular endurance, balance and flexibility.

TRE is a series of exercises that help the body relieve itself from deep muscular tension, trauma and stress.

QEC is a process where the client and QEC practitioner work together to choose new thought patterns and behaviours to replace negative limiting ones.

Life Alignment is probably the most effective and deepest transformation method of today as it gives us a way of re-aligning ourselves with our authentic blueprint.

What People are saying

Marléne has worked closely with me over the past few months and it has been a phenomenal experience. I started doing a few Pilates classes to see if it will assist with my recovery with an injury I obtained.
