National Institute for Health and Care Excellence recommends

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) 2014 guideline about treatment for psychosis and schizophrenia* recommends mental health professionals should offer CBT to people who are experiencing psychosis alongside antipsychotic medication. People should be offered one-to-one therapy for at least 16 sessions over a period of six months or more.

When people are experiencing their first episode of psychosis some may want to try treating their symptoms using only talking therapies, without medication. The 2014 NICE guideline* about psychosis and schizophrenia stresses that CBT for psychosis and family therapy are proven to be more effective when given with medication. However, if someone wants to try family therapy and CBT without medication, NICE recommends* a short trial (up to a month) of talking therapies only. During that time, mental health professionals should monitor their symptoms and when treatment is reviewed, antipsychotics should once again be considered.

People can have CBT individually or in groups. There are self-help versions available for some problems, available in books, on line or via computer. Beating the Blues, for example, is offered by some NHS services to people who have mild to moderate depression.
