who we are
Phillip Hartin is a registered psychologist with extensive work experience in organisational change in the private and public sector. Phillip also has significant work experience and qualifications in education, economics and law.
Leigh McGaghey is a landscape architect whose career spans commercial, government and residential project work together with environmental education and change management for sustainability.
What began as an informal sharing of Leigh's experience in therapeutic horticulture to assist Phillip develop psychological therapy strategies, evolved into a broader application of wider, science-based nature therapies.
Small, incremental success stories with Phillip's clients encouraged us to formalise our working relationship and thus, Wired for Nature was born.
Our services are based on current, evidence-based neuroscience research which supports the case for the physiological and psychological benefits of an appropriate 'nature dose'. We're keen to raise awareness about the ongoing challenges to mental health and well-being resulting from our increasingly urbanised, digital lives. We're also passionate about sharing and promoting the proven strategies which can benefit creativity, adaptation and resilience from early childhood through to later age.
