Ings, who is out of contract in 2022, has scored just three in his last 15 appearances across all competitions.
When asked if Ings's future off the pitch was impacting his performances, Hasenhuttl told the Daily Echo: "Sure, I speak sometimes with him about this and I can imagine that you get more pressure when you are not committing to one way, to our way for example at the moment.
"He has his reasons why he doesn't do it and that gives himself a little bit of pressure maybe. But I think he is experienced enough to handle this."
Hasenhuttl continued: "We miss his goals. He scores all the time normally and at the moment he doesn't.
"But that's on me or us to bring him more often in the position where he can score. This is where I am concentrating, that we find a way to bring him more often in the dangerous zones and then when he is there, I am not afraid that he cannot help us.
"So this is my goal I have and the rest is not so much my opinion at the moment."
