Are you interested in VNC or VPN?  Those are two different things with different steps involved.  If you're looking for VPN, try this: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1424.  If you're talking about VNC you'll need VNC server software on your laptop, so check out http://www.realvnc.com/ as it's free and works well.

Yes, you'll need to install a VNC server such as RealVNC on the laptop and then connect to it using the VNC app on your phone.

One thing to keep in mind though, is you'll have to forward the VNC port (5900, by default) through your office firewall down to your laptop.
