I have always needed to understand before I believed and therefore always asked, "To what purpose?” Staying with this question, no matter how simple or painful the situation, has always constellated an answer and pointed me in the right direction in my life. I have suffered the depths of despair and hopelessness and confronted the demons of fear and anxiety, and, I have come out on the other side of it all, a transformed woman.  I know from experience that meaning lies at the core of our darkest and most fearful encounters and I will be there to support your personal search for that meaning at every step of your journey.

I have worked with people from all walks of life, suffering from many different forms of psychic illnesses, including anxiety, depression, and personality disorders, as well as with people who were in the grips of acute psychosis.  I have seen people rise out of catatonic states of depression; recollect the precious energy lost to anxiety and personality disorders; and return from states of acute psychosis.  In every psychic illness, I see the soul who is trying to break free.  

For those interested in personal exploration and development, I also take a psychodynamic approach to Life Coaching.  I have worked with both students and clients in this capacity, leading classes and experiential seminars. These sessions can help to start or tend the fires of spiritual living - the art of living in Fullness.  I am available for individual and group work.

I am in the diploma phase of my training as a Jungian Analyst in Zurich, Switzerland.  For Dream Analysis, Life Coaching, or Jungian Analysis in Zurich, you can reach me at: 079 821 67 65 or through email jesamine@counselinginzurich.ch   I am also available through Skype worldwide.

If I cannot help, I will support you in finding someone else who does Jungian Analysis or psychotherapy in Zurich.

Alongside a career in Jungian Analysis, I trained initially as a Sinologist (BA) and a political scientist (MA and PhD) specializing in Chinese politics. I am still employed as a lecturer (Dozentin) at the Institute for Political Science, University of Zurich, while devoting the most of my time to academic research in Jungian studies (with special interest political psychology) and my private practice as a Jungian psychoanalyst.  You can contact me at 076 494 1802 or lisenkova.natalia@gmail.com
