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…

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.

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

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. I spoke to Marléne about it and she suggested that I could try out the TRE sessions as it assists with tension release and could quite possibly help with the issue that I have with my Psoas.
