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.

I really enjoyed the workshop, which I felt was very much compliemented by the pre-work I had done with the CD. I had not been brave enough to practice an actual AC though, and this is where the workshop really came into its own. Being able to practice in such a friendly and open group was wonderful. The feedback results really blew me away! I would love to attend this course again, and eventually the AC2 and will try to keep up my practice in between. The others people in the group were so genuine, many who were also interested in other fascniating areas such as Reiki, mediumship etc. James is a gentle guide through this mysterious and eye opening subject.


The Trust Technique really does work! My three dogs all had other homes before living with me and they all had some issues. Love and patience are a good start but the Trust Technique makes SUCH a difference on top of that. Murphy (the most recent addition to the pack) was frightened of everything and even a short walk was a problem. Using the TT he started to yawn and release immediately (which impressed me as I was a total beginner) and within a very short time he was a different chap. Since then I had a phone consultation with James for the health and emotional issues of my oldest girl, Misty. In fact my stuff was causing some of the problems. James helped me with that & Im very grateful

I have found this technique to be invaluable in my training and behavioural sessions with clients who have difficulties with their pet dogs.It also helps me to remain calm in dificult circumstances. In my opinion, all who work with animals and their people would benefit from the excellent help and guidance given by James French to establish the best environment in which to address their problems


This site is great! The videos are very informative and touching to watch, and the tutorials are easy to understand. This technique can definetely be learned through the site. I am using it on my dog, and it has helped me to understand her better, and to stop being dominant with her. It has also taught me how to meditate, and Im using it on myself as well when my mind gets too busy. It feels really good that my money goes to funding this work:)

Before becoming a Trust Technique member 5 months ago I really believed that the relationship I had with my dog couldn’t be any closer but I was wrong. The technique is easy to learn, very effective and quite humbling. The videos are great - when you watch James working with the animals it’s very touching to see them letting go of their past fears or other negative emotions. Im finding this membership site so rewarding as I can see exactly where and how the money is being used and at the same time Im learning the technique. Thank you James for sharing this knowledge. Helping rescue animals to restore their trust, whilst also teaching others to help even more animals, is a wonderful gift.


Ive been using TT with my 4yo GSD Lexie. Shed competed in Working Trials for 3 months when she was given homeopathic pulsatilla by our vet to increase the time between her seasons. An unexpected side-effect was that she lost her sense of smell & tracking was impossible. I continued entering her for competitions until I realised. She was puzzled and unhappy not to be able to do as I asked her. When her sense of smell returned I restarted her from scratch & she enjoyed it again - except at competitions. I used TT to calm her & give her good thoughts about tracking- its restored her confidence & shes now competing happily. Its also great for calming dogs before a downstay. Thanks James


I started using the Trust Technique about 3 months ago with my 6 year old dog, Milly, who has always had a lot of problems with things that scare her and which makes her behaviour a problem. Nothing we have done so far has made any lasting difference. I have now worked daily with Milly using the TT and we are seeing great changes in her. I am able to calm her in situations that previously freaked her out and she is now learning that scary things are not always so bad. I feel she is able to learn better now. Also her relationship with us has deepened and improved. She now tends to look to me when she is in a situation which makes her anxious, which is a real change. We are on the way...!


This workshop was quite the best I have ever been on. Learning the Trust Technique with James was not only fascinating, it was life changing. We learnt a way of communicating with our dogs which was stunning in its effectiveness and simplicity. I now have much more confidence to know what Sky and Shadow are saying to me. After using TT with my boys over 6 weeks I feel incredibly in-tune with them and this is a source of great happiness for us all. During recent Kennel Club tests we almost didnt need to speak we were so switched on to each other. The technique has helped us all in different ways. In other words this truly magical course has transformed our lives. Thank you so much James

I have just been on the Trust Technique weekend and want to say how much of an eye opener and wonderful weekend it was. James enthusiasm for what he does shines through and his teaching is very understanding, caring and informative. I find the technique useful for myself as well as for animals. I look forward to joining James on the Act 2 course also, which I am sure will prove to be equally inspirational and to have the same wow factor as the Trust Technique weekend had.


Although I have only learnt the first stage of the trust technique I must say it has had the most amazing effect on my horses and our relationship. I cant help feeling slightly ashamed that Ive not listened to or understood my animals completely and that theyve not been able to have complete trust in me although Ive loved them and theyve always been OK. Thanks to the Trust Technique I now feel a bond has been sealed, especially with one horse that was given to me with temperament problems. I understand her better, we share time in the present and she is not defensive anymore. She has let her barriers down, become more affectionate and, in turn, I trust her more too. I am so grateful, Bev.
