Chrissi lost her sense of smell in 2012. Since then she has supported thousands of other people with smell loss through smell training. Chrissi has taken courses with Professor Thomas Hummel, the author of the first research paper on smell training at the University of Dresden, Germany. Her techniques, used alongside smell training kits, have helped people to reconnect with their recovering sense of smell. Chrissi also speaks at conferences, runs workshops, online events and private sessions to support people with the condition.
