In her own words
Hi, I’m Kirsten Gronning and for 6 years now I've been supporting hundreds of people whose long-term relationships are falling apart. I work with couples who are still together but have lost ‘that loving feeling’ to quickly identify what is standing in their way. For people for whom time has moved on further, I provide expert advice and support to navigate the end of a marriage, a separation or a break up. In my own life, I survived an acrimonious divorce 10 years ago as a mother of three (now adult) children. I can reassure you there is life afterwards; and for the past two years, I have been an approved foster carer.
Perhaps cracks are appearing in your relationship and there are serious problems with communication. Perhaps you’re deciding whether to go or stay - and not sure how to do either. At these times, it's often hard to confront truths or ask for help. The paradox is that if you do, you’ll find a way to get back on track faster. I’ll ask powerful questions designed to quickly uncover exactly what is putting the dampener on your love. Together we can work on removing these issues, meaning you can perhaps work towards regaining that 'loved up' feeling for your partner.
If you are looking to leave an unhappy relationship, we can identify why you are perhaps struggling to separate or extricate yourself. We can discuss your options and who else might help. Call me here at Greatvine to gain a valuable, safe place to offload anger and sadness, and see a route through. I am also here to support those who have recently experienced separation, including coping when important court dates are looming.
You may have been through the break up, but struggling to see when life gets easier. You may even be wondering if you'll ever feel happy again - perhaps how to have some fun again, perhaps how to get back into dating, and so on. I can use specific questions to rapidly allow you to see what you could now be doing to open up possibilities for new relationships and more.
There’s no magic wand for all situations, but understanding your issues better helps you take back control of your life. Talking to me here at Greatvine can save you time, money and stress; uncover fresh options; and create the confidence to focus and take action. However difficult your situation, I look forward to helping you find the answers to issues which are making you unhappy and holding you back. Warmest wishes,
"I think the most positive aspect of our consultation is knowing that someone with your understanding and experience is 'out there' at this difficult time. Thank you"
"Kirsten has been an enormous help. Someone who has done it herself, with sound sensible advice, while putting no pressure on you to do it “her way” - she can help you come to your own decisions. If you want to jump off the roller coaster, and take control of your own life Kirsten is the one to talk too. Discuss all the options with someone who understands where you are. Even if you are feeling completely lost, Kirsten can help you to focus and find your own goals to work on. She is not going to judge and is someone who will not be fazed when it all becomes too much and you are having trouble just holding it together. I’m getting there…with the right support and help; we may come out poorer but we can become positive individuals with an exciting future ahead."
"You helped me focus my thoughts and strengthen my resolve, it was very easy to just hide away from it all. Of most help is your very warm manner, making you very approachable and very easy to talk to."
"You are very good, very professional, very ethical and know what you are doing. You have given me a path to travel in the knowledge that I can know what I am doing and the eventual consequences. Your knowledge of what to do and when is invaluable – financially, emotionally and legally."
"Most helpful. very nice person to speak with, calm and understanding. Thank you."
