Abstract
Using auto-ethnography, I had an opportunity to research and reflect on what the underlying attributes teachers and counsellors share. As a teacher currently transitioning into a clinical counsellor, I became aware of attributes teachers and counsellors share as they engage with children and adolescents, despite their specific roles. The research will be a qualitative research design and employ methods, of self-reflection, inquiry and research. Auto-ethnography is one of the leading methods of research design in educational settings because it provides the opportunity for researchers to draw upon their experiences. As a teacher currently transitioning into a clinical counsellor, I have decided to research and reflect on what the underlying attributes teachers and counsellors share. The research will be a qualitative research design and employ methods, of self-reflection, inquiry and research.
