Krystina Hayward

Registered Psychologist
She/ Her BSc(Psych); G.Dip(Health Sciences); G.Dip(Psych) AHPRA: PSY0001578406
As a Registered Psychologist, I have a strong client centered approach with a focus on the client’s internal world and how the different parts or aspects within us influence and sometimes shape how we choose to think about life situations. Thinking is our most powerful resource and I take a holistic approach with all my clients, and I strongly believe that all humans of any age have the capacity to heal and reduce emotional pain. I am very committed to never giving up on my clients.
As a clinician who has worked across a number of settings with people from all walks of life, I welcome all ages, Veterans, First Responders, Health Professionals, people with disabilities and the LGBTQI+ community.
My training and skillset
I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychology specialising in Rehabilitation Counselling, a Post Graduate Diploma in Health Sciences specialising in Addictions Studies and a Bachelor of Science (Psychology). I have general registration with AHPRA and endorsement as a Registered Psychologist.
My therapeutic approach
I primarily draw upon Cognitive Behavioural Therapy; however, to develop an individual experience that meets your needs, I also utilise:
  • DBT
  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Schema Therapy
  • Motivational Interviewing
My client care philosophy
I am a clinician who is genuinely committed to remaining present and providing clients with a safe, non-judgmental opportunity to connect and address the barriers preventing them from accessing pathways towards living a meaningful life.
