Trust Technique

The mindful approach to animal connection

I have a dream …

That all animals be treated with mindful regard

The Trust Technique® is a mindfulness practice that is shared between the person and their animals. In the first stages, this connection builds a core bond of trust and confidence in each other, which can then develop and extend to other areas of their lives. When the relationship shifts from fear to trust, over-reactions are replaced with instinctual learning.

Now is the time …

That we adopt a wiser understanding that recognised the difference between fear and trust motivation.

There are many misconceptions in the animal world that are no longer integral to the true connection between animals and people. Such terms as “we need to be the boss over an animal” or that “they are not intelligent” has a detrimental effect on the depth of authentic relations that is and can exist between people and any type of animal.

To explore animal intelligence with trusted co-operation

When the human mind changes to accommodate the opinions of animals a state of gratitude and co-operation can be shared. Opening new possibilities of connection that seem extraordinary when compared to old beliefs and actions.

I first discovered the Trust Technique in February of 2016. I purchased the lifetime video course and watched and absorbed every minute of it. I couldn't get enough, this spoke to me like nothing else I've ever experienced before. I was fully prepared to travel to England for the level one training and saw there was a 6 year wait list. I am now eagerly awaiting the completion of the online practitioner training program so I can become certified. I am also watching the entire video course for a second time. My own dog is a rescue and in the past has been very fearful of many things. I use the Trust Technique with her daily and she has made leaps and bounds with her confidence. I've been a professional groomer for 34 years now and while time restrictions don't allow me to really "work" with my clients dogs when I'm grooming them, I can at least bring peace of mind, calmness and non reaction to my practice while I work. I'm so incredibly grateful for James and Shelley and what they bring to the world with their gifts. Their lights shine brightly 🙂 Love and blessings to everyone! ❤️

With some videos I became very emotional. This is exactly what I have been searching for ! You guys do a great Job !!! After the Practitioners Course I can start working with my clients on a totally different level. What I do now , does work and is very loving and gentle . But it is long term thinking ....and The Trust Technique is not a quick fix , but works really well and faster which benefits the animal tremendously and it's owners as well ! Thank you James ! You are a fabulous Teacher

I have take several dog training and animal communication courses here in the United States with some of the best teachers the world has to offer. Hands down, this is my favorite course and will be the most useful course yet. I have had many years of study regarding the human and animal bond as well as the subconscious mind and James French is SPOT ON! This course has brought me "full circle" and reminded me that we really are born with all we really need, and when we stay in the moment, we can go back to the peace and understanding we had before we became our minds became cluttered with the world as we have come to know it. I cannot wait to take the next course. Thank you so much to James AND the Trust Technique Team!

Finding the Trust Technique has been one of the greatest gifts and triumphs I have experienced! Peacefulness has been a goal of mine for decades and to know that I can achieve it so quickly and that my ability to achieve it in the presence of others has been the tool I've unconsciously been looking for - I call it a triumph because it "trumps" the unconscious manner in the way we move through life, typically rushed and in a frenzy - unconscious in the fact that we can have such a powerful tool to use that has such impact for good in our life and the lives of others and animals. A technique that is so "simple", powerful, quick and easy. I meditate regularly but finding out what getting present can do in an instant for humans and animals has been revolutionary for me and the animals I associate with, especially my own puppy, Oreo!

The Trust Technique Video Course has given me the means to build the kind of relationship with my horses and dogs that I have always dreamed of attaining but never achieved. I've worked with top notch horsemen and learned much but always felt uneasy about the coercion employed. No matter how gentle it was applied the means always felt forced. Though the horses complied brilliantly most practices didn't lead to the development of a deeper more understanding relationship. The Trust Technique opens channels of communication for mutual understand and collaborative engagement. I'm looking forward to completely the course and continuing the journey through other course offering.
