Cristalle Hayes Psychotherapist Counsellor London

Meet Cristalle Hayes,
London Psychotherapist

Cristalle Hayes uses various techniques, including psychotherapy, EMDR, grounding and self-care practices, to help her clients heal from trauma caused by childhood abuse, domestic abuse and narcissistic abuse. 


Psychotherapy and self-care practices can profoundly impact our emotional and psychological well-being, helping us feel more grounded, resilient, and confident.


Psychotherapy and EMDR can help you lead a more fulfilling life and improve your relationships with others. 


Psychotherapy and EMDR can integrate trauma and release hostile and abusive messages we have absorbed that are untrue about ourselves today. 



What is EMDR? 


EMDR is a trauma-informed psychotherapy that helps you process and recover from past experiences affecting your mental health and well-being. EMDR draws upon the body’s natural information processing system, which can become stuck when overwhelmed during a traumatic experience. EMDR uses bilateral stimulation (butterfly taps, eye movements, and bilateral beats) to kickstart our natural processing of memories. Traumatic memories stay in the past and stop impacting the present and future. 


Cristalle’s job as your therapist is to enable healing from the pain and suffering of trauma and difficult life experiences. 


Healing from abuse will empower you to trust your thoughts, feelings, and perceptions again. Becoming more self-aware and emotionally intelligent will also follow. Healing from trauma makes it easier to make decisions, set boundaries, communicate, take risks and be more discerning about what you will allow in your life. 


Psychotherapy is a great act of self-care—a gift to yourself. 


Self-care is liberating when we put our own needs first. 


Cristalle encourages self-care and grounding techniques whilst you are in therapy. 


Cristalle believes in taking your perspectives and pain seriously without blame or invalidation but with a gentle challenge to consider your worldview, relationships and beliefs from a different perspective.


Cristalle hopes that together, we can seek new understandings of ourselves, our relationships and our emotions. 


Cristalle doesn’t believe anyone other than yourself can be an authority on how to live your life.


But with compassionate reflection and an unbiased perspective, you can start making different choices that serve you better. 


What are the qualifications and credentials of Cristalle Hayes as a therapist?


Cristalle trained at Regents University in psychotherapy and counselling for four years, leading to accreditation with the UKCP. 


She has over ten years of experience working with clients and a specific understanding of those impacted by abusive relationships. 


To understand further how Cristalle works, please do reach out for a free consultation session. 


During a free consultation, you will be allowed to ask questions and explain what you seek from therapy. If Cristalle could wave a magic wand, what would you like to happen? You can then decide if she is the right fit for you.

Stress & Anxiety

Anxiety can plague us from time to time – it’s a natural human response to traumatic life events, abusive relationships and toxic life situations and events.
Therapy can provide numerous benefits for people dealing with anxiety. These benefits include being more present, self-compassionate and less fearful and judgemental. To ultimately feel more in control and more at ease with not being in control.


Depression is a human response to painful and challenging situations and trauma.

Depression is nothing to be ashamed of and can mean that you are overwhelmed and dealing with too much and need space to talk and to heal. Therapy can help you understand, deal with and ease your depression.

Trauma & PTSD

When we experience something terrible, shocking and unexpected, it can have a lasting impact on us. Typical reactions to traumatic events include feeling angry, guilty, helpless, hopeless, fearful and stressed.
While these reactions are normal, they can be challenging to cope with. Whether it is a single-event trauma or multiple, more complex trauma, therapy can help you make sense of your experience and give you the space to heal and recover.
An example of complex trauma is childhood, narcissistic, or domestic abuse. Working within hostile working environments and bullying can create complex trauma. An example of a single traumatic event would be sexual assault.
