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 have witnessed the successful results of this course over and over again. The more work I do with an animal and teach their person the more results I see. I get daily emails or texts from people I have directed to James TT. It has brought so many people to a place of understanding "what" I do and why I say you don't need to be forceful to help your animal. James nails it! it's not a program as much as it is a universal awaking of animal and human connection.My husband and I went to a weekend workshop in BC and met Shelly and James. No two people are more authentically helping people to understand the relationship one can have with their companion animals. It is amazing, beautifully uplifting and truly it is life altering for me. I am an animal communicator energy healer for animals and no modality I have learned is more aligned with the animals needs to be healed than this. Thank you both for all you do for the animals and their people.Blissful regard, Leanne

Your course is incredible. I have told many people I come in contact with about it. It is so simple yet the rewards are countless. I am an Animal Communicator and Reiki Master and I am so happy to tell people about your Trust Technique. I am going to rewatch the video's so I do not miss anything as I did get a little too comfortable watch them and zoned out like the volunteer in Thailand at Soi Dog Rescue. Thank you for teaching me this beautiful skill and I will use it forever.

Thank you so much for creating this course! It is by far the best online course I have ever done and it has completely transformed my understanding of the human-animal bond. I´ve finally found the peaceful, loving and kind approach to working with horses that I´ve been looking for my entire life and the results are absolutely stunning! Every horse-lover should know what is possible with trust, peace and patience. Thank you!
