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.

This course has been life changing for me and my incredible friend and teacher, my dog Janssen.At the age of two het was extremely traumatised during a visit at the vet.Ever since I could not take him to a vet any more.Nobody was able to touch him.Then I found this "natural" vet who also communicated with him and she told him he needed acupuncture.That would have been absolutely impossible without the Trust Technique.I practised it for some months with him and when it was time for the acupuncture I used it to calm him down and he let her put 3 needles.It was incredible and really made me cry.A few weeks ago he left his beautiful body and during his last few months the Trust Technique has been a beautiful help to absolutely enjoy our last time together.James, you are such a gift to this world, the way you work with all these animals, all those beautiful video's.It feels like coming home, sharing this beautiful space together with other beings.Thand you so much for this incredible gift James and Shelley.You make my heart sing 💫💓💫

I have been working with these videos off and on for a year. Each time I go back in, I learn something new. I have to say that watching them is very soothing to something inside of me, and always evokes a peaceful response. I can honestly say that this course has been maybe more helpful with own life traumas than perhaps for my anxious dog, BB. Perhaps not, as she now comes to find me when it is going to storm and her anxiety begins. Always more to learn. So I continue studying over and over. Thank you James and Shelley!

From the moment I first saw James working his Trust Technique on Animals on line my Heart swung open & joy flooded every corner of it to overflow from my eyes. It truly was a Dream Day all round from the get go as Horus (the Horse) first greeted me followed by an instantaneous bond with Oscar (the Cat) so after that I was spellbound by the ultimate compassion delivered via The Trust Technique & how truly life changing to all concerned it is and how long it’s been in my life to see something like Trust held with such Sacred Reverence. James, Shelley, Jo & John a very special thank you for the Environmental influences of a much needed change in the way we are in connection with the Animal Kingdom. Bless 🙏🏼💞🙏🏼

A wonderful,heartfelt training day. Relaxed and entertaining as well as sensitively delivered by James and Shelley. I'll treasure this new knowledge. Thank you.

This course is simply incredible. I have been communicating with animals since I was fifteen, and learning how to be peaceful and silent with them is equally vital to being able to hear them.It calms them (and me!) right down, and my oldest and wisest horse absolutely loves it, she soaks up the peace like a sponge.I have been able to use it to resolve disagreements among the animals, anxiety, nervousness and simply as a way to quiet our minds for a good heart-to-heart talk.Thank you so much James for sharing the tutorials and numerous case studies with us.
