How did Evolution Creative Arts Therapies come to be?

Founder, Nyrelle, established Wyndham Arts Therapies initially to attract other arts therapists to the local area to work alongside her. The momentum began when Svetlana joined as team leader and together with Nyrelle, this set in motion a transformative journey from which emerged Evolution Creative Arts Therapies (eCAT).

What once began as a quest to attract talented therapists has evolved into something greater – a mission to ignite joy, transform lives and make a difference in our local community.

At eCAT we believe that the power of creative self-expression can make a profound impact on the human spirit. Today eCAT stands as a symbol of hope, resilience and community. We continue to evolve, not only as a business but as a family of dedicated individuals committed to creating a brighter, more caring and joyful world.
