There are a number of ways a person can be referred to the UQ Psychology Clinc. Please read on to find the most appropriate method, or contact us if you are unsure. 

Self referrals

Members of the public may contact the UQ Psychology Clinic directly to make an appointment, both for themselves or for their child. Health professionals or organisations providing health care, case management, or educational services may also make referrals.

To make referrals to the clinic, contact the Admin Staff on (07) 3365 6451. Alternatively, complete the Referral Form and forward it to the Clinic at the address provided on the form:

Referred clients are placed on a waiting list and will be contacted as soon as a provisional psychologist is available to see the client. Please note that waiting list times will vary throughout the year depending on demand.

Once allocated to a provisional psychologist, the client will be contacted to arrange an appointment. During this first appointment, details about their current situation and previous history will be collected.

If it is determined that the UQ Psychology Clinic is not the most appropriate service for the client, they will be referred to other suitable services either at the time of first calling the Clinic, or after the first appointment should it become clear that our services are not the best way forward. It is therefore important that if you have any concerns as to whether the Clinic services are appropriate that you discuss these with admin staff or the Clinic Manager.

Referring someone else

As a health professional or organisation dealing with people, you may have clients or patients who would benefit from seeing a psychologist (whether it be for short term or long term treatment). You can refer someone to our Clinic by completing the referral form below and emailing it to our admin staff, or by telephoning or emailing the Clinic directly. As a training clinic, we do not require a mental health care plan, you can simply refer someone to our services.
