Psychologists study the science of human behavior. They offer psychological/mental health assessment/diagnosis and have a deeper understanding of mental health issues and disorders.  Counsellors are trained in a variety of therapeutic modalities and have more training in building a relationship with clients.  While mind and body issues are considered, counsellors often go deeper emotionally and work to identify root issues and bringing healing to past issues showing up in life now.  Costs vary but most psychologists have a gap fee to pay, after the medicare rebate, that is similar to a counsellor.  If you do not connect with the person you first see, try someone else.   Health care plans are transferable.
