Could you, please, confirm or deny that the feminine form of the common noun psychologue exists and is used in French? Wiktionary and my old dictionary don't mention it.

Confirmed, it's the same form for both masculine and feminine, which may be why Wiktionary doesn't mention it. But your favorite search engine should point you to a number of instances of "une psychologue" or "la psychologue".

No separate feminine form; it's common gender - can be either.

In all my dictionaries the adjectival meaning is primary, and from the form of the word there would be no difference between masculine and feminine (like "jaune")
