Go to mail.yahoo.com

and click on

I can't access my account

you'll see below options;

I forgot my password
My password doesn't work
I forgot my Yahoo! ID
My account may have been compromised

try 1st, 2nd & 4th option one by one, provide relivent information as much as you can & then yahoo will see if the info you provided matches then they will reset password for you.

Without having access to an email account or phone that is tied to your yahoo account your only option will be to reset it.  Even if you contact support and they confirm your the account holder they will only offer you to reset your password.
