Welcome to YESS

Your Emotional Support Service (YESS) is a Mental Health and Well-being charity based in Uttoxeter Staffordshire 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 children, young people and adults. Our therapy team is made up of art therapists, person-centred counsellors and dance movement therapists.

We also provide a number of private client therapies and a wide-ranging training programme that includes mental health and well-being in the workplace as well as training designed to support parents with children with additional needs.


We are currently still supporting our clients by either telephone sessions or by zoom (a video-conferencing application).

Every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 3.30 pm to 5.30 pm we are facilitating telephone emotional wellbeing support sessions for young people and parents, please call 07794 473442 for more information.

At YESS we take the safety and health of our clients and staff seriously and in line with advice from the government or regulatory bodies, we will be undertaking business continuity assessments in the coming weeks.
In order to ensure the safety of our offices, we ask that all visitors, clients and staff use the provided hand sanitizer before entering and exiting the building.

We will keep our clients and customers updated on if and how this issue will impact our service delivery, until then please see the official guidance provided by the NHS which can be found on the NHS website.
