The Centre for ICASA
The Centre for ICASA opened in the UK in 1994. The founders, David and Jane Brown, had returned to England after a number of years in a U.S. medical facility specialising in the treatment of male impotency and other related sexual dysfunctions.
As Directors of Therapy, David and Jane trained and managed a team of counsellors and studied and used the methods of Masters and Johnson of the Sex Therapy Institute of Boston in both training and treatment programmes. It was during this period that they explored the role of Surrogate Partner Therapy in treating sexual anxieties and dysfunctions and resolving intimacy problems and received relevant specialised training with the International Professional Surrogates Association (IPSA) in California. In 1994 they established the Centre for ICASA in the UK and developed the ICASA Ten-Step Recovery Programme.
As therapist members of the International Professional Surrogates Association (IPSA) and the British Holistic Medical Association (BHMA), ICASA specialises in the treatment of psychogenic sexual and relationship problems by helping men and women discover sexual healing and confidence through its unique Ten Step Recovery Programme.
After nearly twenty years in therapeutic practice, the ICASA Recovery Programmes have enabled hundreds of men and women to gain control of their sexual responses and to enjoy full, satisfying intimate and sexual relationships.
David Brown is a transpersonal therapist of over thirty years experience. He first specialised in treating sexual dysfunctions at the British Diagnostic Clinic in Florida in the 1990’s. He graduated through the International Professional Surrogates Association training programme in Surrogate Partner Therapy in the early 2000’s in California.
David has studied extensively the psychological system of G.J. Gurdjieff and P.D. Ouspensky, is an Interfaith Minister, ordained by the One Spirit Interfaith Foundation and a Kriyaban Member of the Self Realisation Fellowship, London.
