You do not require a referral to see a psychologist. However, if you wish to claim rebates through Medicare you will need to see your GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician for a referral to a psychologist. Medicare will not accept your claim unless you have a GP Mental Health Care Plan or have the relevant referral information from a psychiatrist or paediatrician. See Medicare FAQ for further requirements http://www.health.gov.au/internet/main/publishing.nsf/Content/mental-ba-fact-pat.
