About Astrum

Carolyn Bassett established her private coaching practice, “Astrum Coaching Limited“ after successfully completing her coach training in 2009. Astrum’s purpose is to support the professional performance and the personal success of individuals and organisations seeking positive sustainable behavioural change.

Astrum is the Latin word for star! Carolyn believes that every single one of us has a star within… some need help to find it, some have found it and need help to make it shine, and some already shine and want help to shine brighter!  Hence Astrum Coaching was born.

Carolyn will partner you on your journey by taking you by the hand, holding you accountable and leading you through the challenges ahead in order for you to realise your goals and achieve the next level of success.
