A psychologist is a mental health professional, and a psychiatrist can additionally administer medicine.
Neither is "better" than the other, it depends on the issue at hand

It means the psychiatrist only recamands medicine? And the psychology just checks

No, both of them help treat mental health issues. But while a psychologist helps through therapy (whether it be art therapy, drama therapy, musical therapy, CBT, etc) a psychiatrist helps through medication.

A therapist is simply a person that carries out therapy/rehabilitation sessions/treatments (thus you also have physical therapists for the body).
Both psychologist and psychiatrists may carry out therapy, only they are trained to do it in a specific way.

They are entirely different training routes. Psychiatrists are doctors first, then specialise. Clinical psychologists do a psychology degree, then work experience, then a 3 year clinical psychology doctorate
