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 attended the April 10/11th 2010 trust technique workshop, and thoroughly enjoyed it.James and Shelly run a welll organised fun and relaxed workshop with a good balance between practical and theory sessions. Jamess infectious enthusiam for his subject is supported by his wealth of knowledge and experience, which he then deliveres in a clear, gentle and encouraging manner. As for the centre it was very calm and peaceful to be, thank you Emma.Many thanks James and Shelley.

These two days were wonderful. They really opened my eyes to a new way of working with horses and myself. Great for personal development as well as horsey development. Excellent value for money.

I really enjoyed the Trust-Technique weekend of 10/11 April. The venue was perfect and peaseful I met some really nice people. To be shown the trust-techique with the horses was amazing. I think that James is a very good teacher, I would also like to thank Emma for the very friendly welcome and I was impressed how hard she works looking after so many horses and the passion she shows towards them all. Thank you James, Shelley and Emma for the lovely weekend. Linda

Welcoming, accepting and valued.A door way to a new and inspirational way of helping the animals that cross our path. The practical work carried out on the dogs on the course was nothing short of miraculous-and all within the realms of ordinary dog owners. One complaint-time went too quickly !! Diana Hillsdon

This is the way forward in understanding how to connect with our animals. It is helpful for pet owners or anyone working with animals on a professional basis.

James is a gifted teacher who has has a way of making everthing very clear and easy to follow. Although I attended a dog course and I only have horses, I still found it very easy to translate to handling horses. I enjoyed the course so much Im going back for second helpings.

I loved the Trust Technique weekend, thoroughly enjoying every minute from start to finish. The venue was perfect with a warm and welcoming energy and gorgeous animals. It was really useful starting with a demonstration before moving on to the theory and human work on the first day. James teaching flowed beautifully and the technique was explored in a very healing and sharing manner within the small group. The second day working on a practical level with the horses was just amazing, being able to immediately put into practice the technique we had learnt, with James constant support. Thoroughly recommended!

James is an excellent teacher and has the gift of explaining everything in a way you can’t help but understand. The practical work on the horses was a wonderful experience as you could clearly see the calming effect that The Trust Technique had on them and James was close by, encouraging us and giving us confidence. I recommend this course to anyone who works with or owns an animal although it can be used with people too. I came away with the knowledge of a fantastic technique, I have some great photos and memories and would like to thank Emma and her animals for making us feel very welcome in their home. Thankyou too James for a great weekend. Carol Wass Grayshott Therapies)

I really enjoyed attending an ACT1 Workshop a while ago. Purchasing the CD set has enabled me to reflect on James words and remember the things I had forgotten. James calm tones talk through each step of the process, making the information easy to digest and recall. There is also a personal quality to the way the information is imparted giving the listener the feeling that James is there with you providing private tuition. I am now saving up my pennies in the hope of doing an ACT II Workshop in the near future.
