Jill Kelter, Staffordshire University

Who am I?
Hi! My name is Jill Kelter and I am a MSc Psychotherapeutic Counselling student at Staffordshire University.

I am looking for family members of people who have an acquired brain injury (an injury to the brain that has occurred at some point after birth), to take part in a study investigating the impact of acquired brain injury on family members.

I am interested in learning about your experience of acquired brain injury, and also your experience of counselling.

What is the study?
The study will involve a semi-structured interview that will last for approximately one hour. The interview will take place either face-to-face, or online via Microsoft Teams, depending upon your availability and preference.

How do I get involved?

  • To participate in this study, the following criteria must be met:
  • You are over 18 years old.
  • You are the family member of someone who has an acquired brain injury.
  • You have accessed counselling in the UK within the last 3 years.

If you meet the above criteria and would like to take part in this study, please contact me via email:

I look forward to hearing from you.
