Yvette Wass - Counsellor & Accredited Relationship & Psychosexual Therapist
Hi, my name is Yvette Wass and thanks for choosing my profile. My experience pans over 11 years and my specialist areas include relationship problems (personal, work, family etc), sexual difficulties and emotional eating/binge eating. Often these occur in the wider context of other problems relating to depression/anxiety and other common life problems such as bereavement and loss. I am what you call an integrated therapist which means I have been trained to use a range of counselling approaches to be versatile in matching my approach/techniques to your issues. Clients may be single or in a relationship or relationships, may attend on their own or with a partner or family member.
I have clients who request solution focused therapy to work through specific life difficulties, so a short course of 6-8 sessions. Others require a more specific tailored treatment programme (between 10 and 20 sessions) and some simply return to counselling for adhoc appointments when they are thrown a curve ball and they are finding things tricky.
Counselling is not an easy process but insightful. It provides a space to reflect, talk and explore issues that may be difficult to talk openly to others about. If you have any questions at all please do get in contact. My website address is https://relationshipwellbeinguk.co.uk

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists
COSRT is the UK’s leading membership organisation for therapists specialising in sexual and relationship issues.
All members must abide by their Code of Ethics and the performance of accredited members is regularly monitored.
