Maria Angela (Jelly) Virata’s approach to Psychotherapy is integrative–working with the whole person—body, mind, spirit, and emotions. Her M.A. is in Counseling Psychology and specializes in Transpersonal Psychology.

Ms Virata combines in-depth humanistic psychotherapy with a practical Brief Therapy approach called Solution Focused (SF). She is a Master SF Practitioner (MSFP) with the International Alliance of Solution-Focused Teaching Institutes (IASTI) and a Professional Coach (PCC) credentialed by the International Coach Federation (ICF).

With the Solution Focused Approach, Jelly helps people grow and feel better equipped to face the challenges in their work and personal lives. She is more interested in listening to clients’ strengths, resources, and capabilities to manage challenging situations. This builds hope & optimism and helps people find solutions in small, workable steps.

Jelly has been conducting Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) Certification Training in Manila since 2009; as well as the SF WOWW (Working on What Works) Teacher Training program since 2014. She has also adapted the WOWW coaching program for the corporate setting; training managers and teams.
