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.

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?

in cork you need a degree in psychology with a good portfolio or a art degree. thats what a guidence coucillor told me but that was 3 years ago.
