I am an MSc counselling student at Keele University and interested in the experience of being the youngest sibling.

The aim of this research is to give voice to youngest siblings and gain a deeper understanding of the impact this can have on individuals throughout their life.

The research process will include an online interview, lasting up to approx. 1 hour. You will be invited to bring something along as a point of discussion- but this is optional! More information will be provided in the consent form.

Participant profile:

  • The youngest sibling
  • Have an age-gap of 5 years of more between you and your siblings

OR feel your sibling age gap has been significant for you

  • Feel the above has impacted on yourself in any way: i.e. on self-development, relationships, etc.
  • Are 18 years or older


If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Nikita at: w8x11@students.keele.ac.uk

Thank you for your time and look forward to hearing from you!

Nikita.
