    Who am I?
  • Surrender to life...

  • A new door opens...

Welcome to my website

I am Annika Jaakkola from Finland and have a psychoanalysis and psychotherapy practice in Zürich, Switzerland. But no matter where you are in the world, I also offer my consultations via secure video conference call.

Together we set the goals for the work to give the unconscious a framework to produce helpful materials. I meet you where you are. We explore dreams, fantasies and everyday events. Often knowing your family tree allows a deeper understanding and liberates you to your own life. We can also use visualization and imagining techniques.

As C.G. Jung remarked: “Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain,” I encourage you to paint, draw, write or make music. Whatever is calling you even the slightest.

During our work together we aim at activating your own self-healing and life-supporting core. We all have this core.

Be honest to yourself, because only you can know your own truth.

Daring

See how life gives you all that you need.
See how every challenge helps you grow and how every storm strengthens your roots.

Shadow

One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.

C.G Jung

Go upstream

Do not fear. Surrender to life.

Find out why you were born here.

Dare to learn to love what you have and what you don’t have.

Carl Jung

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

C.G Jung

Getting to know each other

Psychotherapy/Analysis begins with a mapping or getting-to-know-each-other -session, which allows both of us to see if we are a match to work together.

After the first meeting you are welcome to take the time you need to decide.

The most important thing is creating trust, a safe environment and an experience of being heard and understood. Any resistance to change is just natural.

New Beginning

When we decide to begin our collaboration, it is important to commit to having the time for the process. After each session it is best to take care of yourself, protect and nurture the new growth. Normally we meet once a week, but if necessary we can meet twice a week for a period of time.

As I commit to working with you, I also commit to full confidentiality.

Some shorter work of 1-4 consultations focusing on a singular challenge is also possible.

Transformation

Together we set the goals for our work. We begin from where you are, exploring dreams, fantasies and any everyday events. We can make your family tree to aid your understanding and to help set you free to live your own life.

The therapy process is always very individual and unique. It is not possible to know exactly how long it will take.
