ABOUT ME

I am a Sociologist, Social Worker and Sexologist

(Collegiate no. 25-11612 COTS Madrid)

My professional career has developed in the fields of sexual health and addictions.

And in these 27 years of work experience I have worked in Spain, the United Kingdom and Australia.

I am currently focused on the response to the phenomenon of chemsex, which is a specific type of sexualised drug use linked to the LGTBI+ community. I work as an instructor and consultant on chemsex, for different public institutions and community-based organisations.

I also offer online support to chemsex users.
