Do you go to the lawyer and say, "Try this case for me so I can see if I want to use you in the future?"
Or the psychologist: "prove to me you can help me get over the loss of my relationship and then I'll pay you."
I dont expect free goodies from someone to see if they are real. But a lawyer can present an university degree which qualifies him to do a job, likewise a psychologist and a car mechanic (I dont trust lawyers anyway
). They usually had to undergo a kind of test to prove their competence.
With the field of psychics it is a little trickier, as I as a customer have to rely either on my own "intuition" or on the opinions of others, and I know both to be way more easier to manipulate than degrees or quality tests of a product (I am not saying that the latter ones are infallible).
