We’re artful counsellors.

We’re creating happier, healthier humans through creative counselling.
Formerly called Rue Create, Creative Connection is all about making a better tomorrow. We dream of a world where everyone lives a happy, heartful life.
So, we’re helping young and old brighten their mental health through our artful counselling. Designed from the latest research, our programs are guided by an accredited Level 3 Counsellor. There’s no judgment and no expectation. Because the proof is in the process – you’re building your emotional wellbeing as you get lost in your creative flow. And that goes for ‘non-arty’ folk too (we see you).
