They often work together to provide treatment for the one seeking treatment; the patient would seek therapy services with the psychologist, and the psychiatrist provides medication if needed and monitors symptoms.
A counsellor is a person who has taken a course (certificate, diploma or degree) in a therapy method that usually involves taking with and listening to the emotional or life problems of their "client". A psychiatrist is a licensed medical doctor (with a medical degree) who has undertaken a period of post-graduate education to become a psychiatrist and is able to prescribe medications and generally works with those "patients" who have mental diseases or disorders.
