a psychic claims to have powers that can't even be demonstrated to exist
a medium has the power to contact something that can't be demonstrated to exist, in order to get vague information that is applicable to lots of people yet useful to no one.

A psychic is someone with an ability to sense things above and beyond the normal range of the five senses. Clairvoyance for example.
A medium is someone who communicates with the dead.
the two very often go hand in hand, as a medium very often has a psychic ability that allows for communication (again, clairvoyance, which is sight, or clairaudience, which is hearing, as in hearing the voices of the dead).
