How do you become an art therapist?

I am interested in becoming an art therapist but am having difficulty finding any info on the net about art therapy in Ireland? Does anyone know what courses are available. I already have a degree in Graphic design, which includes rather extensive art training.

Crawford College of Art and Design (part of UCC) also offer Art therapy courses - I recently did their summer workshop and thought it was very useful...

Is it necessary to have a degree to do it do you know? or could i get away with a portfolio and a B.A. in philosphy?
