Where it all began
Back in 2011, YESS started out as a one-person team.
In that space of time, we’ve also rebranded, changed offices a few times and welcomed some new faces along the way!
We even survived working from home during a global pandemic, whilst continuing to support people when they needed us most.
a little bit more about yESS
so, what is YESS?
Your Emotional Support Service (YESS) is a mental health and well-being charity based in Uttoxeter and operating throughout the Midlands including Staffordshire, Shropshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, South Cheshire and the West Midlands county.
Our fabulous group of counsellors and well-being practitioners provide emotional support and opportunities for people of all ages; children, young people and adults. Our therapy team is made up of art therapists, person-centred counsellors and dance movement therapists. YESS is an organisational member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and we have practitioners who are also registered members.
We also provide a number of private client therapies and a wide-range training programme that includes mental health and well-being in the workplace, as well as training designed to support parents of children with additional needs.
