About me

How would you like to be completely free of smoking easily and for good?
How would it feel to wake up knowing you'll never smoke again, or to get to the end of the day without even thinking about a cigarette?

“You have changed my life. No smoking, no desire. So happy.” - Catherine M

The Simmons Practice Online is dedicated to helping people like you, run by myself, Cathy Simmons, Leading Quit Smoking Specialist

But, this isn't about me - it's about you.
If you are looking at this there's a good chance you are now ready to take the leap and stop smoking for good, and I know this can be a bit scary.

  • Will it work?
  • Will I go through withdrawals
  • What about cravings?
  • Will it last?
  • Will it work for me?

Let's book a call and you can ask all the questions you may have. I have plenty of time for you, without any pressure at all.

Find a time that's convenient for you here: and I will call you on the number you leave.

Find out all about how it works and why this approach is so different.

I work exclusively online, and I need to tell you that this is an amazing way of working.
We will use a system called Zoom, similar to Skype, but without you needing any sort of account. You just click a link and you're in. It's much better than Skype and completely secure.
We can even test it out before you choose to work with me.

Have doubts about therapy online?  Let me reassure you.  As a pioneer of online therapy I have been working this way for about 4 years now, and I trialled it for 9 months before moving exclusively online.

I was blown away by how effective it is - and so are my clients.
People don't even need to leave their house or travel, how easy is that?
I help smokers all over the world.

Helping people stop smoking permanently is a complete passion for me and I offer a radical new approach, which is science-based. I am so passionate about it I also train other therapists in my approach and have over 100 Simmons Method™ trained therapists across the UK.

In hypnotherapy circles I am known as THE person to go to, and many of my colleagues refer quit smoking clients to me. 
Book a chat at a time that's good for you and find out more for yourself:

You will be in safe hands and helping you to quit smoking permanently, easily and completely is my ultimate aim.

Further information

With a background in the financial industry, you may wonder why such a change of career!  I stopped smoking with hypnotherapy, and was so amazed at the profound effect it had, that my curiosity got the better of me and I just needed to know more.

Initially trained in Cognitive Hypnotherapy at the Quest Institute, I have, over my years in practice, been constantly researching and doing additional training in the field of addiction, and nicotine addiction in particular, from the neuroscience of addiction through to the social, environmental and all other aspects.

I am on a mission to help more people get free - easily and permanently. It doesn't have to be scary.
