In this episode, Vicky Linnane chats with members of the editorial board of Polyphony (the online platform for Irish Creative Arts Therapists).
The POLYPHONY project aims to provide an online space for creative arts therapists in Ireland and beyond to share key insights and innovations, as part of enhancing the profession and practice of the arts therapies.
Vicky Linnane is a registered Art Therapist. She completed her BA in Arts in 2009. Following this, she studied a Postgraduate Certificate in Arts in Healthcare Settings at NUI Maynooth. While working as a creative arts facilitator, she obtained her Masters in Art Therapy from CIT/ Crawford College of Art and Design.
With 2020 bringing a whirlwind alongside it, Vicky leaned on her media studies skills acquired from her undergrad to develop her very own podcast. Embrace Therapy Podcast offers the listener a chance to hear from qualified therapists and mental health care professionals themselves, as they share stories, insight and research on how embracing therapy is positive for one's mental health.
Vicky currently provides art therapy online and operates her private art therapy practice, Enrich Art Therapy, from The Acre Project, Celbridge and The Basin Street Centre, Naas.
