Elevating Animal-Human Connection

We 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 recognises 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 relationships that could 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. This opens new possibilities of connection that seem extraordinary when compared to old beliefs and actions.

Being a student of the Trust Technique I find this a beautiful expansion to our course. It really explains the different parts of the Trust Technique so well and I love the way it is done.
This will be so helpful to anyone, practitioner, video course members or people becoming interested in the Trust Technique and wanting to find out more about it. I also like the idea of gifting it to someone.
Thank you so much James and Shelley


I have tried to write this several times, and it always ends up a novel!
So I read many of the others and can only re-iterate all the positive comments.
Very grateful you made the Messages of Trust available, I have been aware of the Trust Technique for a while, but these vids showed me clearly the course I need to take for myself and for my horses. "When the student is ready the teacher appears."
I have been searching for a way to connect with my horses in a way that 'regards and respects' them rather than shuts them down and get responses from being trained.
Two realisations of note, I will be doing more work on myself than on the horses!!
I doubt I will be able to ride or train or see behaviour in the same way again.
I am looking forward to developing true connection and communication with my horses
Is there a time limit on availability of the Messages of Trust, need to keep watching


As one of your Practitioners, I am forever grateful for your work, dear Shelley and James! These messages of trust are so deep and insightful - and will be the foundation of my Trust Technique work with my clients.

Thank you so much for creating this video course! Such a concentrated rich version of TT descriptions.
Each step is described in great detail and very clear. It helps me so much when I need to describe to clients. I'll spread these important messages as much as I can.
Thank you!

Oh wow, I just loved the Messages of Trust, so inspiring and thought provoking!
I have been doing the video course for a few years on and off ,but watching this has inspired me to get back into it fully as I feel I have a better understanding of the whole concept. I feel You have given me a lot more insight into the how and why it works! Thank you both from the bottom of my heart , your work is incredible , watching the videos of what you achieve is amazing and certainly stirs the emotions ! 🙏❤️


I thoroughly enjoyed this!
Thank you


I have been a video course member for about four years now and love the way that my learning has grown over the time I have been studying this amazing technique. When I have a particular problem with an animal I refer to the relevant session in this wonderful library of videos at my disposal and always find the answer there. For me the Messages of Trust is the cherry on the top! It is something I shall continually consult and watch the results unfold.
Thank you so much James and Shelley. You are a blessing from above!


Thank you so much for creating these messages also reminding me of the much beloved video course. It also helped me to deeper understanding of the trust. I hope it is possible to keep the access to these messages since I need to go into the material repeatedly and discover new messages every time. I love this so much and it expands my life with all my animals, one dog, one cat and 3 horses and human family and friends.


This is a very uplifting course and served as a useful reminder of the techniques explained in the video course. I love watching you interact with sensitive animals. Thank you.
