Lynley Soper on the rewards giving career change advice 

“I enjoy operating as an independent  career development practitioner and coach, applying my passion for helping people create opportunities to do work they love” says Lynley. 

“I thrive on supporting my clients to learn to ‘captain their own ship’, acquiring the qualifications, experience, networks and career management skills necessary to successfully create opportunities for real meaning in their work and life.

“Professional development and personal growth go hand in hand in shaping us as individuals. It is our experiences as much as the qualifications we attain that help us grow into more rounded individuals and better versions of ourselves.”
