The art of relationship

Vezal Institute

Albert & Leonida Mrgole

You know, relationships are not easy,

but that doesn’t mean they can’t be beautiful, full of love, and worth it.

Imagine a life where your relationships function as a finely tuned instrument, with you as the musician simply playing it. You would be calmer, have more time and energy, and be healthier.

Our goal is to teach you how to tune your relationship so that you can compose beautiful balance and harmony in your life.

If you don’t already know us, then you can read about our work here.

We are an established and well-known psychotherapist team from Slovenia, Europe, who have been working together for over 15 years.

We have been married since 1985 and have raised four children, who are all independent adults now.

Albert has a PhD in sociology and studied psychology, doing fieldwork with marginal youth in a residential care institution. He developed a program for rescuing school dropouts, which received the European Innovation Award. He has been a practicing psychotherapist since 2003. Albert initially trained in systemic family therapy, and he and Leonida continued their studies with Imago clinical therapy techniques and began working as co-therapists.

Leonida is a trained reflex therapist and learned about psychology and parenting techniques “in the field.”

Since 2013, we have been training in emotionally focused therapy (Susan Johnson’s approach) and organized over 500 seminars and 200 workshops and had helped more than 10,000 people.

We also wrote a national best-selling book, Connect with your Teenager. It has been a bestselling book in Slovenia for parents of teens for five years in a row, and it is now available in English!

By raising four children, we came up with methods significantly different from others because their perception of a home environment did not quite fit with others. With the help of our background as therapists, we came up with solutions to complicated situations in a more elegant, simplified, and effective manner.

We gathered practical experiences as real-life case studies for parents. Each case study illustrates one of the points from our workshops—practical information that is easy for everyone to relate to and apply at home.

Connect with Your Teenager

A guide for everyday parenting

( The No.1 National Bestselling Book for Parenting Teenagers )

Have you ever felt like:

  • you aren’t equipped with appropriate experience;
  • you grew up in different times or cultural situations and aren’t sure how to adjust (most of us did);
  • you stopped participating actively and thoughtfully in parenting, because they were excluded from, or encountered, disagreements in their partnership;
  • giving up because of feeling powerless;
  • you have no support from their partner;
  • you don’t know what to do, because they had already used up all their ideas.

Connect with your teenager is a book for parents as users in everyday situations from the perspective of their teenagers’ needs.

You will find very practical parenting tips for when you don’t know how to deal with teenagers, how to make kids listen, how to motivate teens, how to renew broken bonds etc.
