Since 2010, James has video recorded all sessions with rescue centres and his private clients. This has created a vast collection of stunning examples of how the Trust Technique works with all types of animals – dogs, horses, cats, lions and even rescued bears.
Each video story highlights different problems and how the principles and concepts of this method have been applied. These working examples, are accompanied by creative video tutorials which have been designed to teach you this method with ease. Breaking each concept down into practical exercises for you to do with your animals. Making this powerful technique available for you, to use at home anytime, no matter how busy your schedule!
"This course is one of the most valuable things I have ever watched in my life. It not only helps me to help my furry friends, it also helps to understand more about who and what we all really are. The sharing of feelings, thoughts and being among all of us, humans, animals, is such an amazing gift. I remind myself daily to share the right feelings with others and not the wrong ones. I love to be able to give more peace to any animal or human, including myself. James and Shelley and everyone participating: A huge THANK YOU from my part. What you do really changes the world. I wish, everybody would follow the course and live what it teaches. Lots of love and gratitude for your amazing, kind, wonderful work"
Inspired possibilities with kindness!
The Trust Technique ® is based on the premise that you and your animals share and react to micro feelings. When there is over-thinking it creates strong emotional feelings. This makes it difficult to understand or connect with each other and can have a negative impact on the relationship. Over-thinking is one of the main causes for so called “behavioural problems” in both animals and people!
This mindful practice is shared between you and your animals and is the opposite to over-thinking. The new connection builds a core bond of trust and confidence in each other, which can then be developed well beyond any problems. When the relationship shifts from fear to trust, over-reactions are replaced with instinctual learning.
A peaceful authentic state of being that promotes cooperation through kindness. The reward, is a more truthful understanding of animal intelligence and allows for communication that manifests in shared wellbeing.
The video course is laid out in sections, in total there are currently over 250 videos. Each section has a number of different tutorials and working sessions with different animals. You will find Horses, Dogs, Cats, Lions and Bears all being helped with the Trust Technique. The tutorials give very clear exercises so that you can start using the Trust Technique with your animal within the first hour. The animal sessions are either working and helping rescued animals or private consultations with James’ clients.
This is the perfect way for you to discover the many concepts and principles of the Trust Technique and then share this practically with your own animals.
James teaches you on a one to one level, sharing his intimate and personal experiences of working with clients and rescue centre animals. Imagine being able to connect to this information when you need it! The course plays on all devices, so you can watch with your horse in the field!
The course is really well laid out, layering information by introducing a topic and returning to it so you can really “get” it. I have been using this course in preparation for taking on a highly sensitive rescue dog – which has been a process over several months. In the meantime, our Beagle, along with all of us, has been reaping the benefits of receiving TT and our new Rescue arrived 5 days ago. I have been doing 3 x 10ish mins a day and he is already a much more chilled out dog. I sent a video of him to his foster home and she literally burst into tears saying she had never seen him so relaxed and at peace. I can’t recommend this course highly enough, it just makes everyone in the family more gentle and thoughtful.
WORKING WITH RESCUE
James and Shelley donate their time to teach rescue staff this method. The examples in the video course feature Dogs, Horses, Cats, Lions and Bears
WORKING WITH CLIENTS
The video course covers numerous home visits, helping animals and people with the Trust Technique. These examples include Dogs, Horses and Cats.
Detailed and fun tutorials which are simple to do and very beautiful to share with your animals. Experience is everything and this is where yours starts!
The Trust Technique is not just for helping your animal who has problems! It is a combination of both communication and healing that will benefit you as much as them.
At the beginning it may be that you need to help them find trust and confidence and this soon develops to deepened states of connection and communication.

Questions & Answers
We believe that it works with all sentient beings. Not that we have worked with all the different animals on the planet :) We have worked with horses, dogs, cats, lions, bears and numerous types of farm animals.
The Trust Technique was developed to help the sensitive animals that the other approaches have not been able to help. Because the animals’ opinion is fully regarded it means that the animal is not placed in a position to be pressured. This then helps them trust and build confidence in you.

This is the kind of treatment, I would love to see more of. I’m very excited to begin this journey. It FEELS very good. Thank you for what you do.
Dear Shelley and James,
Wonderful to see all this healing happening and often within a small amount of time.
You have created a beautiful technique.
Just finished the course. I’ve found it inspiring, moving & extremely interesting. It’s helped me to remain positive through some difficult & emotional times. It’s great that it’s so effective on all animals including humans. I’ve been practising the technique on my own animals but will look into taking this further. I obviously don’t get quite the same results as James & Shelley but practice makes perfect. Such a beautiful thing to offer any animal & I feel this is something I can use in many situations from now on. Thank you so much for sharing your gift xx
The information in this course is riveting. The techniques are simple and everyone can learn them. James and Shelly are changing the world for both animals and humans.
Bless you James French and Shelley. WOW. I am so grateful to have found your training, and I don’t know how I did find you quite a few years ago.
This program Trust-Technique is by far the most beautiful study of animal nature I have ever had the pleasure to being exposed to anywhere In the world.
As a Animal Reiki practitioner here in the United States,, I am familiar with some of this content, but still learned so many important lessons about being present and so much more that is helping me in my personal life and in my professional animal healing life.
PLEASE share with EVERYONE you know that has animal companions or loves animals as part of their personal humanity. You will NOT be sorry, and dear James French, you are the most compassionate, loving, and peaceful human being I have ever had the pleasure to “witness”. Bless you for all you do to educate all of us to take better care of our sentient friends who teach us all about UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

Hei, the longer I look to the video course, the more, I learn about trust technique, the more I am impressed and touched deeply in my heart. Thank you, giving me the opportunity, to make these experiences. I am really glad that I can follow the great work of James, thanks a lot! Irene
Amazing work. Amazing summary of the Trust Technique and years of compassionate work. It is sure a great contribution to peace on our planet we all need so much. I wish schools would teach this. Thank you so much.
As a Animal Reiki professional, I found this course invaluable for additional tips beyond the Animal Reiki training I have had with Kathleen Prasad. These techniques are helpful in my super busy life also, as I have challenges with staying present in my own life. Thankyou James and Shelly for all your do for humanity and our beloved animal kingdom. You are a blessing to all of us.
So incredibly pleased with the couse. So glad I am a lifetime member so I can watch many of them again. Thank you so much for your work with bringing peace to so many animals..and making the processes and teachins available to the public. I cant wait to start my Level 3 course in spring with the expectation of helping animals and humans learn about the Trust Method in my part of the world. Smack in the middle of Canada. This course was so easy to follow and access. Love, love, loved it!
I have just finished the video course and I have been left with so much gratitude to what I have learned from James. This approach is so valuable and important to be spread, it is life changing for humans and for animals. The work of James and Shelley has to be supported wherever possible.
Irene from Freiburg, Germany
I am really happy, that I found this course. It’s breathtaking to do the exercises and watch the videos and I enjoy every minute. Thanks a lot for this great experiance
Excellent information!! James and Shelley teach the information in a very sincere honest manner which shows how passionate they are for helping people and animals. I live in the U.S. and there are ALOT of talented telepathic and nature based spiritual teachers. But they are far more concerned with charging high $$ and stretching the courses out to make as big a profit as they can, than they are for actually helping people learn the skills. Being a great telepathic communicator and energetic healer is only part of the qualification for teaching those skills. Truly caring about your students success, and thereby the welfare of the animals and people your students will help, is what makes you a great teacher of telepathy and energetic healing. The Trust Technique is incredible.
This course is one of the most valuable things I have ever watched in my life. It not only helps me to help my furry friends, it also helps to understand more about who and what we all really are. The sharing of feelings, thoughts and being among all of us, humans, animals, is such an amazing gift. I remind myself daily to share the right feelings with others and not the wrong ones. I love to be able to give more peace to any animal or human, including myself.
James and Shelley and everyone participating: A huge THANK YOU from my part. What you do really changes the world. I wish, everybody would follow the course and live what it teaches.
Lots of love and gratitude for your amazing, kind, wonderful work from
I have done the video course 2 times and I learned each time a lot. thank you for the wonderful work you are doing.
I continue to be overwhelmed with awe at the depth and healing potential of this work and the inspired insight of James French. I truly feel it is a genuine light in our world and awakens the spirit of cpmpassion and connection which is so needed now, Dare I say, it could save us all.
The animals have such innate wisdom to teach us if only we have ears to hear and eyes to see. In the video course I am learning that miracles happen in evertday lives and that this peace can be taught and shared between humans and withanimals . I am eternally grateful to have discovered this as it has fullfilled a longing I have had in my heart for as long as I can remember and almost stopped believing in. There is so much amazing content in the videos, tutorials and exercises which are literally changing and healing my life and expanding my sense of faith and hope in a saner and gentler world.
Thank you James and thank you, Shelley for all your hard work and committment to share this work andmake this form of transformation possible for us all. I can’t think of anything more valuable I would want to support or be a part of. Thank you!!
Loved this course. Learned a lot about the Trust Techniques as well as how to communicate with animals. In this course I also learned more about myself, and my relationships with animals. I learned more about their culture and how to be respectful when I have the privilege of being in their presence.
Thank you for all the effort and time that you put in to help these incredible beings!
It’s hard to put into words. My gratitude and appreciation to have met James & Shelley and part take in continual learning which personally influence my relationships with animals and humans. It involves continuing practice on one’s self, bringing the present moment into daily life, not only while together with others, but with one’s inner being. This is not a traditional school, James shares his experiences with great dedication to bring awareness to everyone. “I have a dream that animals be treated with mindful regard”. Thank you J&S. Cindy, located in Switzerland
For all my life, I dreamed about a deep relationship with a horse. When I bought my horse, it took me another 2 years to really start to listen to him – and all I heard was “no”. I read books, I watched videos, I started to understand what I was doing wrong, I listened harder to him, but the ” No” only got louder.
Until I started the Video course. For the first time, I feel a tender connection growing between us, and it is one of the most wonderful experiences of my life. James and Shelly, I am so infinitely grateful to you for this amzing gift. I’m still in the middle of the video course and I know what I’m experiencing at the moment is only the beginning, but I now have confidence, that all will be good. My whole life has changed. Thank you.
Amazing, mind blowing and enlightening. The Trust Technique has enabled me to develop a deep connection with my horses. Creating trust, harmony and respect. Thank you.
Beyond belief and so excited to start the course. Thank you for your heart, already a blessing to me.
Thank you so much for sharing your loving. peaceful and respectful course. Its wonderful to teach in this way so humans realise how privileged we are to share our lives with animals.
Where was this 30 years ago? 20 years ago? 10 years ago? The understanding of behavior is huge, the healing potential off the charts, and the outcomes nothing less than stellar! What a colossal blessing you two are for the gift you offering both animals and humanity in general as you close the understanding gap between all creatures everywhere. May we never look back, but only forward to the amazing future that exists through understanding the invisible realm, and knowing others at a level only dreamt of until now. Your dream James is just amazing and thanks a million for bringing this training to the larger audience. We thank you, our animals thank you. What a gift!
The most beautiful thing I have ever being involved in. Thanks James and Shelly for opening my eyes and heart. You have changed my life and my animals. This course is truly amazing and the best thing I have ever done with my life. ???
Loving it so far, relatable to animals and people on so many levels
Fascinating information! So far, I’m loving the course. Thank you for sharing!
James , I just love your approach with animals and to watch you is truly inspirational . I have just watched you working with Delorean and it bought tears to my eyes . Your input was so important to help him to have a peaceful passing – thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and experiences .
Exactly what I needed! Practical and doable. Pure genius, simplified into essential principles & details, with abundant video examples providing an immersive experience where we see, hear, feel and understand what is happening. Inspiring, informative, ground-breaking. It also gives us a way to resolve our own issues so they don’t get in the way of helping our animals – now that is valuable all by itself! It’s been life changing for me; deeply affirmative, giving a way forward that has heart, soul, and intellect beautifully balanced. A game-changer.
This video course is in fact far more than what I expected. You get a very strong tool on hand to work with your animals. And James is very clear on his instructions and adresses all areas that could cause trouble for the learner. After 8 years of living with a traumatized dog, I finally understand what is going on in her mind and feel that I have found the way how to help her. The changes are slow but there have been some incredible steps forward. My dog is so grateful for the extra time and understanding I now have for her, we have grown together a lot. Thank you so much for sharing the Trust Technique with us.
My animals and I thank you so much for sharing the wonderful gift of the Trust Technique. The tutorials are so well thought out and clear and have instilled me with confidence. The case studies are totally inspirational. This course has enabled me to truly listen to my animals and help them to be peaceful.
Thank you so much out of the depth of my heart. I do have a dream to really connect with my animal family more deeply than I have succeeded up till now. I have tried especially to achieve true Connection with my Icelandic horses but also my dogs and cats. I have practiced mindfulness for riders , am practicing Taiqi for many year and done many courses on horsemanship on true feel,savvy for riders and studied with prominent horsemanship instructors. Nobody has explained and demonstrated like you how I and my animals need to be to be truly connected. I still have a lot of lessons to study and I feel so happy excited and thrilled about what I am now learning. Thank you again so much for sharing these lovely techniques for Being.
Just finished the new Salt River Wildhorse videos which I just received. Nakota, Agave, and Red The Stallion. They were wonderful. I am especially interested in them because I live close to the horses during 6 months of winter and will be attending a SRWHMG Orientation on Feb. 16th hoping to do some volunteer work with them.
I am going through the videos for the second time and. learn something extra with each one. I am getting closer to my childhood ambition of talking to animals
I wish I could give more stars than just five. What a huge inspiration Shelly and James are. I loved every video and every story, becoming addicted to them. With each story, you fall into the learning journey and want to see how it ends. They demonstrate time and time again how we can give hope and peace to animals. I can’t wait to start my practitioners course. Keep the videos coming, I need my fix!
I’ve taken an age to come onto this brilliant site and begin my lessons. It was over tow years when I traveled from Scotland to spend 1 day with you beautiful and wonderful people. It was a magical day , and so worth the drive.
I’m happy that now I feel is my time to get involved and will watch all videos with enthusiasm, and get to know others who are, as James said, Like minded.
Beautiful and calming introduction to the content of this site.
Thank you James ans Shelly for The Trust Technique.
We work with rescued horses and at-risk children 7-18. The horses and children heal each other, but not until they can find that deep connection that The Trust Technique teaches. My highest regards and deepest thanks to James and Shelley!
The Trust Technique is to relationship
what E= mc² was to science.
Can’t thank you, James and Shelley, enough for sharing this technique with us. The ability to help people and animals in such a lovely peaceful way is so beautiful…and often quite emotional. I understand…and really listen… so much more to my two wee ponies. Everyone who shares their lives with horses should be required to take this video course. Ohh what a better world it would be!
although i have jumped in and out of this course .the impression it has made not just on my life but my dogs is quite amazing. i feel my confident in my life and i understand better what my dogs and foster dogs need from me …i hope that one day i can do the full course …thank you
The video course is outstanding. It has inspired me to move into a world I want to live, with confidence and love. James and Shelley are truly amazing people. They’ve bought the most incredible way of working with animals into being. One which resonates with my beliefs and philosophy on how we should work with animals. Mindful regard is a miracle and needs to be spread around the world with love. Thank you for the learning. I’m incredibly excited.
This has been a life changing experience for me. I have been training animals all my life, but once I embraced the Trust Technique, it took my connection to the animals in my life to a totally different level. One of mutual respect, appreciation and understanding. I will forever be grateful for this blessing.
I feel deeply grateful for this course. Thank you so much for sharing this with me. It gives me inspiration to behave and look at the animals differently.
Thanks so much to Shelly and James for providing this beautiful course. It has helped myself personally and my animals . My horses esp one who was carrying so much stress he is slowly releasing and he’s real personally is coming out it so beautiful to see . I would recommend this course to anyone who wants a deep connection with your animal friends . ?
I’ve now watched 42 videos, and feel so grateful for the way the trust technique is moving the dial in how we relate to and “regard” our animals. I cannot spend time with my horses or dogs without feeling the presence of an opening between and among us. I’m looking forward to exploring more of deepening trust through this wonderful course.
I have now watched every section/lesson twice, and the second time found lots of things that 1) I cannot remember seeing the 1st time round (!) and 2) that I now understand much better, against the background of the entire course. Doing this course does something to you on more than one level! Can only HIGHLY recommend it.
Very easy to watch and learn. I recommend it to anyone interested in animals and having a good relationship with them.
The course is really well laid out, layering information by introducing a topic and returning to it so you can really “get” it. I have been using this course in preparation for taking on a highly sensitive rescue dog – which has been a process over several months. In the meantime, our Beagle, along with all of us, has been reaping the benefits of receiving TT and our new Rescue arrived 5 days ago. I have been doing 3 x 10ish mins a day and he is already a much more chilled out dog. I sent a video of him to his foster home and she literally burst into tears saying she had never seen him so relaxed and at peace. I can’t recommend this course highly enough, it just makes everyone in the family more gentle and thoughtful.
Sooooo great! I am really grateful for all the hard work that went into putting this course together! James had me when I saw all the horses lay down! I am going to be very busy at my barns!Looking forward to my first horse going to the land of Nod! I am soaking in all of the information and will head towards the practicioner level. Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity.
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
Thank you James and Shelly for this course . It has helped calm my mind and also my dog. I have finished the course and plan to start over. You both are truly a gift of love to animals and the world. Emilie Wheet
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!
I’m really enjoying this course. So many great examples of the TT in action. Everything is explained well and there are plenty of case studies to back up the theory. If every horse owner understood the importance of trust, horses would be much happier to interact with people and form calm partnerships.
Rev. Charlotte Bear
Absolutely magnificent. I cheered. I cried. I couldn’t stop watching, gawking through smiles and tears about how redeeming we can make our relationships with our animals partners. This course is a worldview changer (or affirmer), and I think it should be a requirement for anyone who wants to live with an animal. Great job, folks. Truly blessed work you do!
Once I started watching a video, I just couldn’t stop watching them. I got a lifetime membership, so that I could watch over and over again, and watch all new videos as soon as uploaded. I’ve learned so much not only how to approach animals using TT, but also how to grow as a human. This is a life-changing course.
The videos are just amazing. And the course is really great: everything is explained clearly and patiently. Thank you for that.
I’m so thrilled by your work and your generosity, James and Shelley! I wish people may know more of your work and your dedication to the animals.
I am glad to be part of this community that actually respect animals: so many people that love animals do not respect them in my opinion. Here it is sheer respect of living beings.
Thank you, thank you!
I really loved this video course!! I’m also benefiting personally. I manifested this and can’t wait to start the practitioner program in Sept. Thank you for your work and sharing this with all. can’t wait to help you share this with the world!! I finished in 28 days. I just could not get enough. I just graduated my horse to the heavens four days ago and used this to bring peace to him and my herd.
I am really sorry that I have completed this course – I just wanted it to go on and on! Very good value both in content and cost. I have enjoyed observing how the TT has developed over the years and I am still amazed and moved by the extraordinary results. I hope very much to join the Practitioner course and be able to help others to engage in this effective methodology. Just one very small point – I would have liked a small summary video at the end to acknowledge finishing the course. Looking forward to learning and practising more. My dogs and my friends animals have also enjoyed the course! The biggest lesson for me is recognising and going at the animals pace.
Thank you to James and Shelley for restoring our faith in the human/animal connection.
Note from James
Hi, Stella, this course does not end as we will be putting new content in soon 🙂
Still on my way at the very beginning. Amazing videos, very good instructions and incredible work that you are doing!!! Very grateful to be a little part of it 🙂
It is a joy to me to know that at least some of our animal friends and coinhabitants of this precious earth, are being treated with the love and kindness and respect that they deserve and to know that the inspiration is spreading. I am inspired and delighted by this work, although I don’t have any animals of my own to work with at this time, and other things take precedence, still I love to look in to this world from time to time, and I thank you for all you do.
This is by far the best course that I have ever studied – and I have taken very many courses on Inner Peace, animal communication, Reiki, etc. This is so straightforward and easy to do, and I could see instant results that were lasting. All my life, I have been fearful and worried, and suffering from insomnia. Now I am peaceful, trust life, and sleep great. My horses and dogs have totally transformed as well and are a true joy to be with. Thank you so much, James for your incredible life work.
This is such an amazing course. The content provided will move anyone with a heart. It is so mezmerizing to watch as James works with the animals. James jumps right in with the first video with instruction, After just the first few videos I already have begun to see a great difference in my own animals. I am so excited to move forward with this. Where has this been all of my life? Many thanks for creating such a program and sharing with us!
Thank you Shelley and James For thousands of hours of hard work on Animal Rescue as well as Mentoring us ignorant peasants in how thoroughly connected we all are on this tiny balll of mudd and water travelling through empty space!
The Video Course and the Trust Technique it self is a mind boggling journey. I hope that we will now all learn to respect and dignify one another based on spiritual values rather than material greed and Status Quo.
Fantastic and a very inspirational video course. Very different and great examples.
I have already learnt a lot for myself from the content of the course and is it so lovely to see the reaction from my dog Mr. Nero; how he can learn in his own pace. What a delicate technique to create a deep bound between a human and an animal based on trust and peace. Genuinely excellent. James and Shelly are absolutly inspirational for me. Thank you so much for your great work around the whole world. I have just finished the Trust Technique Video Course and I am looking forward to start the Crossfields Institute Level 3 Diploma in Mindfulness for People with their Animals.
This video course is truly amazing. I am experiencing a lot of peace myself and my dog is asking for more a lot of the time. Bruno is 14 and getting fragile now. He is a fully trained guide dog and therefore very focused on me. He has cared for me when I have been poorly and now he needs me to focus on him. Thank you for sharing your skills and understanding with these student friendly sessions. I am not blind but pretty old now and this course is a joy for us both. Lots of people have noticed how connected we are and how Bruno asks for peace sessions and how refreshed we both are after we have been present. Thank you guys I am well into this course and will share with others as much as possible. Annie Larner
Getting back one animal’s trust into humans and into life is not easy. But James does it very quickly with the Trust technique. I wish I had more time to go forward with the course and practice with my cat …. and myself!
I love The Trust Technique course: James’s calmness and love for animals is inspiring. He is one example for all those who want to help once abused animals to get to the happy life they deserve.
Thank you again, James and Shelley, for this course which I would recommend to anyone as a therapy for animals and also for humans. And thank you for what you are doing for animals.
James and Shelley and The Trust Technique are people who are totally trustworthy; and the techniques they have developed and are teaching fill my soul with hope for animals and their future experiences with humans who have taken on board what the Trust Technique reveals and teaches. At last – animal-human interactions based on peace and respect. Thank you from this very grateful Australian.
it´s a lot to say about the Trust Techique. And it´s all positive :-)))
First of all, what I really love is that it is ever so gentle and kind for the animal as well as the human. As James phrases it: Where peace arrives the unpeace has to leave, so if the human is offering the present moment, he is becoming peacefull himself and that already does a lot of good….
Secondary it´s that James deliver´s a feeling towards the animal. If he is proud of an animal you actually can feel the pride across a camera onto your Laptop, and see how much this does for the animal. This truly feeling a feeling instead of just talking about a feeling.
Next is that he does differentiate between sympathy ( feeling sorry for ) as a no-no and empathy (feeling with), which for me is quite exceptional and totally necessary for healing.
Offering the peace of mind in this mindfull regarding way makes it even gentler and opens the space for easy learning for the animal and again for the human as well.
Last but not least the Trust Technique is so easy and effortessly to learn, that everyone is able to do so and…. change the world to the better :-))))
Hi James and Shelley,
The animals have said it all. Awesomely simple. A return to the anti speciest garden of Eden….wish more humans would or could venture in for a stretch and leisurely stroll.
Jan JoyAn Tucker
I am more than half way through the video course and have been applying everything being taught with my own horses, boarders, and dog. It is so rewarding to see them releasing and then to feel the new level of relationship. Helps wonderfully with training. The course is so well presented. Every consultation teaches new skills and awareness with different animals.
The Trust Technique is the most amazing tool you can learn to connect and bond with your beloved animals. Working with horses and my own pets at home, I have found that they not only respond easily to the technique, but to finally be able to communicate with and understand what animals feel, think and experience has been life changing and a dream come true. Watching James use and teach the technique in his tutorials is astounding. You have to see it to believe it! His amazing gift and beautiful spirit is undeniable. This course has been life altering. Thank you for your light, dear James…
Well im totally mesmerised and cannot wait to keep watching . Only up to the first topic as i am so so busy with my son who has Autism and the reason i say this is that i have a very strong feeling this will help him too. The feeling of love i got watching especially horse Millie is truly magical. Cant wait to carry on . Thankyou James and Shelley x
I’ve practiced the Trust Technique in a number of situations and it works wonders. It has shown me how to approach situations involving animals mindfully every time. I know I’ve helped cats and dogs in significant ways, and probably also house spiders and bees that also respond to ‘present moment’ feelings. Thanks, James!
Just done the first 2 free tutorials, (found the link on Parelli youtube.), and signed up for the year.
Found even this small snippet transformative; i struggle with my mental health and this is the single most useful thing i have ever come across.
Feeling at peace for the first time in years and, better still, know i can re-create it at will. Wish someone would start a movement to treat humans with the love respect compassion and understanding that we are finally learnig to extend to our animals. THANK YOU (4 dogs and 3 cats thank you too)
Halfway through my assessment is the same as on starting the free videos: this TT is GREAT! It goes straight to the heart of the matter, and to your heart too! I’ve always loved and communicated with animals but this is what’s been missing. And easy too – just takes a little training, which is very good , very benefiting for yourself to start with. James very wisely avoids all mentioning of ‘meditation’ etc. — the TT IS true meditation. Thank you James and Shelley!
Halfway through, the course, it´s blending perfecly with view of life. Super!
This course has helped me immeasurably. It has made me re-evaluate my relationships with animals, and start to re-build these based on TT principles. It has also brought me peace at a difficult time. Thank you so much for your wisdom and love.
The way you are helping animals and their owners is on such a deep, deep level. Thank you for sharing your wisdom. This matter is not easy although you make it look and sound very simple. Learning to hold space for an animal/individual, learning to go at their pace, learning to stay in a state of non reaction and peace ….. Such beauty… THANK YOU
What a marvellous and heartful adventure doing this course, I can’t wait to meet you on April 22nd and have some direct experiences.
The pace and presentation of the material, along with continuous gentle repetition and examples made everything well paced and easy to digest.
I enjoyed seeing Shelley in some of the clips, and would like to have heard from her directly with some experiences and reflections, as she seems to be a big part of your work in the world too ?
Many Thanks for the sharing of this technique.
Adding to my original review : on a personal note, I don’t have any animals at this time, however the course gave me many reframes and new outlooks on experiences I’ve had as a volunteer with wildlife in Africa, and at some local shelters in Canada fostering and caring for cats. I am very much looking forward to integrating the TT with the Interspecies Communication I am exploring, including when I return to Africa at the end of the year.
It’s nice to be here. I think I have found an important tool for me and my journey. The peace of mind, for myself, is what I’m looking for the most at the moment. I like your quiet energy very much and that’s why I’m here. Tanks from Switzerland!
I will be grateful for this nugget of gold for the rest of my life. It not only helped me improve the relationship with my horses, it also made me a better and more understanding mother and it gave me a lot more peace of mind already. And this is only after a very short time so I hope it will aid me even more over the course of time. Thank you, James!
I have been practicing with my horses & i have to say I WAS SO EXCITED WHEN THEY BOTH CAME AND LIED DOWN WITH ME MY SHIRE IF WAS DREAMING! Thank you so for teaching the trust Technique.
This is what I´m been looking for. Though I didn’t know. Suddenly it just crossed my path, and I just knew. Perfect!
I am loving this course. The videos are clear and often very moving. I have looked for something like this for years and now it is just a matter of regular and dedicated practice of the principles. I appreciate that you give feedback too when we send in questions. The only thing I would like that isn’t yet possible is to have a group where we could share our experiences. Maybe a private FB group would work? I am learning so much but would love to be in touch with others doing the course. Thank you so much for your dedication to animals and to helping us students learn how to communicate better. Kate
PS there is a typo on this page – grateful x
I have to apologise , good feedback should include the pros and cons and I am looking for something to comment on that is missing or could be improved…………. I have been practicing the exercises since I joined about 2 years now in the context of horse training and better communication . between horse and human. this practice has deepened and is revealing energy changes in the world around me. Now its crystal clear it is about my inner work…….if everyone joining can embrace this concept it is a wonderfully guided video course.
I love Trust Technique, I was looking for something like that since a while. I’m a Telepathic Animal Communicator and that has increased my awareness of the importance of deep connection with all living creatures (animals and humans as well), and the huge need of healing most beings are craving for. I believe the Trust Technique it is the perfect tool I was looking for. I feel priviliged to be here. With trust and love, Nicoletta
It is a very nice course. Of course, I am going through it. Being already an animal communicator and an Apprentice in learning of Tellington Touch, the Trust Technique allows me just to wrap it all up. It is very logical and it goes with the philosophy of Yoga, when you are present, observing. There is no emotion, just observance.
Is thank you enough? I have learned so much, I changed. I am more confident. I am proud of myself. Many things I learned here, I knew, but people told me many times that what I thought was not right, but now I know I was. So I am on my way and can believe in myself. The animals around me changed also. So James en Shelley, thank you very much for sharing your knowledge.
Thank you James and Shelley for sharing your free Peace of Mind videos. I have an 11 year old welsh driving pony who is so tense and anxious when I harness and drive him it makes me anxious and fearful and can make driving him unsafe. I love this Trust Technique way of teaching me and my pony to find peace, harmony and friendship and look forward to learning all I can from your lessons and videos so that Mr Wynn and I may enjoy driving together.
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!
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 ???
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.
I recently ordered James’ Animal Communication Training CD set.
I was pleasantly surprised of how effective and inspirational his training is. Not only James is extremely talented, he also has the skills to effectively transmit his gift to others. Learning animal communication with James is very easy and fun, besides being extremely soothing. While listening, I can actually feel his energy just as he was sitting in the same room with me. And, I’m not kidding, my three dogs feel the same.
Honestly, I have no words to describe the admiration and respect I have for James . He is truly my hero, and his contribution to this amazing planet is huge. Thanks, James!
I am blown away by this course! I always knew there was something missing in my communication with my horses and the Trust Technique is definitely the missing link! Thank you so much!!
This video course is a miracle! I’ve studied a lot through my many years, all different methods and courses of working with animals. This far exceeds anything I’ve seen, studied or read
before. I feel very blessed to have discovered this site and James. Thank you!
I am loving this course. It feels so good to be present with my cat. I am a lifetime member even though I just have a cat to work with because i believe you are a gift to us and animals. Thank you for developping this simple but powerful technique because you are helping to take suffering out of the world . You have a very important mission and I am greateful to have found you and to be a part of it. If ever, you would like to Montreal Canada, contact me , I can help you organize your stay. Hoping to meet you some day, till then much love to both of you and to all the animals around the world!
Totally awesome. Have gone through the material once, and am now starting over again. It gives hope for a better world, makes me feel good, and I want everybody to do this course. My cats love it too. Fantastic value for what is given.
Thank you so much.
Although I have had this course for nearly a year now I have only just started it as I have been moving to another country !
I am loving it but taking it slowly to absorb everything,
I have always been interested in communication with animals and attended a workshop once, but i must say this is the only one that has kicked in for me !
Thank you for being here !
Dear James and Shelley,
This course is absolutely brilliant, it is very easy to understand and makes life better for animals and people.
Thank you very much that you made this video course.
I agree with al the other reviews that are written.
just started, and watched the intro on how to use the course. I was quite anxious about using ‘on-line’ method but having seen how to navigate and explanations of how it works….feel more confident…. and so inspired and excited to continue…..so here goes…
This course is even more amazing that I thought it would be! I’m learning so much valuable information and practical ways of using the Trust Technique. The instruction is clear, logically presented and includes many fascinating examples and case studies. I’m enjoying going slowly through the course, revisiting parts for a deeper understanding and progressing at my own pace. The video materials not only teach the content effectively, but they are inspiring and heart-opening in themselves. I can’t recommend this course highly enough, it will bring you a much more profound understanding of the animals around you.
I am at the beginning of your course, however this is not the beginning of my journey to discover the Avatar connection with animals. It is my passion to develop a special bond and connection with the animals that I am fortunate enough to meet, I am looking forward to learning your technique, I have been very impressed by what I have seen so far.
This is a deeply transformational course. I work with people more than other animals at this point, although as a naturalist/guide I have been around animals all my life.
What I have become deeply aware of and fascinated by is the animal inside me, and its way of being in the world depending on whether it is trusting or terrified.
As a coach, I have used this idea for several years, to help people understand their motivations and choices in a new light. What this course has done for me is two things:
First, it has brought me to a place of being able to enter the hall of mirrors inside me where all my thinking and judgment lived – allowing me to let go, and heal inside myself.
Second, it has given me a tool to calm myself and stay calm, so I can be a truly trustworthy guide for other people, whether I am guiding them into the Utah wilderness or the wilderness of their own unconscious.
Third, there’s a spectacular gift in being able to get peaceful and trustworthy enough to have almost magical interactions with a bighorn sheep I meet up with now and again in this canyon country.
Thank you, James, fro the bottom of my heart. This is the most profound and important training I have ever received.
Dear James and Shelley, Thank you for sharing your unique gifts, they are like no other. You are so kind and generous, and I’m so grateful that you are on a mission to make life better for all animals. I agree with all the reviews and I don’t want to repeat what has already been said. I would like to comment on the videos of Fanta. I enjoyed, using your framework, observing Fanta change within the physical, emotional and spiritual areas. He was so frustrated and agitated in the beginning. He then became playful, happy, peaceful, curious and joyful. My heart nickered when I saw him transition from an unconfident horse into a confident boy. Loved the way he used his entire body to strut along the path. Well done Heather! Thank you for being vulnerable. James & Shelley, looking forward to seeing you Down Under in Feb.
I am developing my ability to do less and create more! – more trust and understanding and also more being instead of doing. These videos are allowing me to absorb your technic myself – before I offer gentle stillness to an animal. its a beautiful experience. Thank you . I have seen Ares and Bella and Grace twice now and I have turned down the sound so I can focus on the body language as well as melt into the moment. You will not be surprised to hear that I cANT STOP YAWNING.
This is a magical course. Every video is absolutely engrossing and left me feeling happy and peaceful. James’s patience is unwavering and the animals obviously trust him completely. I am truly impressed. I have started using the technique on my rather nervous whippet who seems calmer after just a few sessions. I feel our relationship is deepening by using the information on this wonderful course.
Excellent, each video just gets better and better, really inspiring not just in my work with animals, but in my life as a whole. Video 19 on Intent, resonated with me particularly and has given me a clear insight into the importance of Intention. I don’t use the word Awesome often, but this course really does inspire Awe ….. truly Awesome. Thank you
Hello James and Shelley,
what an amazing course you have provided. The web site to learn it all from is really excellent. I do not have any animals of my own right now but one day when I stop travelling it will happen.
What I love is the method you use to gain the animal”s trust and how they respond. It is so heartwarming to see how they move from being fearful to being able to relax with humans again, and absolutely wonderful to see abused rescued animals knowing peace and enjoying life.
The way you work with energy so resonates with me in how to move in everyday life and situation. The latest video “Intent” a powerful example of that. Thank you so much for what you offer. Barbara
just wonderful……I’m finding this version of the video course is much more comprehensive and also easier to follow. I’m going through it all over again and getting even more out of it than I did the first time. This time I find I’m working on my own issues much more……and it’s paying dividends in terms of peaceful dogs . Thank you so much for putting this out there…..
The first video course I have done. I was a little sceptical -purely because of myself, I thought I won’t be motivated enough on my own to go through the full course. What I think now, having completed the course that it is one of the best way to learn new skills when you are on the other side of the world yet feeling so connected to the subject. I loved how it helped me to organise my own time, create a routine and keep up with my own schedule in order to stay in tune with the subject but without any pressure or stress to achieve what I wanted from this course. Thank you James and Shelley for making amazing efforts with the films (I know, as I used to be working as a documentary film editor. It is not always easy), creating a user friendly website and to involve anyone who is open to learn. And finally, after completed the course (approx 9 months) we rescued 3 dogs who (and us) benefit so much of everything I learnt here. Many thanks, again for your work!
I love your videos you are showing how to get comfortable with the animal and gain their confidence through clearing your mind. I have found this helpful while practicing Reiki. I took the The Connection by Eric Pearl and that is how he heals with a clear mind and letting his hands go where they may. When I come in my room and listen to your course my dogs fall asleep. I do not have horses so I am going to temporarily skip to section 5 where it talks about dogs. I love all modalities of healing and animal communication.
Have started watching videos. Totally enjoying them. Very much in line with my own mindfulness and TRE training, practice, and the teaching I do. And learning much more already. Thank you – continuing…
Happy New Year to all. I am new to the course and am LOVING IT! It is an added layer to my knowledge and experience.
James & Shelley……thank you for finding a way to share your own knowledge, intuitiveness and sensitivities. It makes perfect sense to me that the animals on this planet have been grossly misunderstood by humans. It fills my heart with warm fuzzies ☺️ And joy that you have recognized this, found a way to open the door and then to share this with those who are of like mind.
I’m so blessed to have found you. I’m so looking forward to seeing all the videos and listening to the tutorials.
Just started the course after a busy Yuletide and practicing ‘being present’. It is a very powerful technique for self empowerment – a big thank you to James – I am so looking forward to continuing on this journey.
Wonderful, wonderful course. It resonates with me so deeply, and I have used it with my cats with great succes. I have found a deeper level of peace in my life. I love it, it is the best money spent ever. Maybe even considering becoming practitioner in the future 🙂
I can not express how much I love this video course. Everyone just makes my connection with animals even more dramatic. The simplicity of shifting an animal’s energy when I listening and then do the exercises presented by James is beyond belief. Even when I see it with my own eyes. Love this every day I experience another exciting connection of trust with the animals around me.
Joy de Pominville
I am going through the course a 2 nd time. I was completely mesmerized and blown away the first time and stayed up late many nights watching the videos. This 2nd time is helping me reinforce many of the details and content and fine tuning some points for me. I don’t have horses of my own, but have volunteered for 4 yrs at a rescue, in between traveling in Europe and the UK for a year at a time. I have used the trust technique not only on horses, but cows, sheep, goats, birds, dogs, cats and the best part was with myself to be peaceful when my monkey mind would begin to go sideways. It has helped me with my energy work with people as well. I am deeply grateful for James and Shelley for sharing their gifts with the world and esp. the animals. The world is in a better state because of your efforts. Mille grazie, hvala lepa, muchos gracias, arigato, danke shoen, dank je, obrigado, multimesc, THANK YOU!
Wow, but I absolutely loved this course, I couldn’t wait to carry on to the next session as each one ended! As the course progressed I felt I was being taken on a journey, a journey of patient knowledge being given for learning to give and receive trust and understanding. Thank you
Loving every minute – learning from the tutorials and then watching the case studies. We have just adopted a rescue cat who is very scared of people and will not be touched. He is gaining confidence every day now that I am using Trust Technique with him. I cannot touch him yet, but I have a feeling that it won’t be long before I can. Everything just feels so right.
Clear and calm presentation. It makes me feel even more excited about joining James and Shelly in helping people and animals connect.
I am about half way through this course and it is absolutely amazing, what I have learnt in a short amount of time is fantastic, to be able to watch James in action on the videos is brilliant, this teaches me so much. I have had some lovely moments with our new cat, who is very nervous, she is very wary of human beings, I know it’s going to take a long time to gain her total trust but without the trust technique I would have to question whether we would ever gain her trust. Thank you James and I am blessed to have been told about you!
Been waiting for this all my life – a way of connecting and communicating with animals that is so easy-to-understand, so easy to see, to feel, the results…..
Only just started but very easy to follow and so much information. I am signed up for lifetime membership great value thank you
I’ve only watched your introduction and your free videos so far, and am about to embark on the full course. What you do just speaks to my heart, and feels absolutely right in every way. Thank you!
Hi James and Shelley.
I just started the course, but so far I am delighted to all the work that you have done to help those animals in need. I wanted to help you guys and here I am and I am very glad I did.
I just took some time to be in the moment with my horses and I wish I had it on camera, but it would not be the same. So I had a very WOW moment. (WOW moment is a moment that I have no words for). Yesterday I did the same with our 2 dogs and yes they fell asleep. Another WOW moment, so I am very grateful that the universe has shown me the way to this powerful tool. Thank you and keep the good work.
I truly cannot find words to express how right the trust technique feels to me and what a transformation it is bringing for me and my animals. I realize this sounds a little big but I think it’s accurate: to me the trust technique, James, Shelley, and this community represent a leap in consciousness and it brings me to tears to think about how beautiful this is. I’m pretty sure the ideas in this course can and will heal the world.
I absolutely love this, it brings tears to my eyes. Thank you for sharing this gift. I feel it could heal the world
Thank you so much James for the gift of the Trust Technique. It resonates with every cell of my being, telling me that I’m born to support this sharing of your beautiful present ( in time and space) gift to alle living beings….I love all course movies…tears are often rolling over my cheeks from happiness and compassion..wishing that more and more animals and human beings can experience this free state of mind creating the bridge between our animal brothers and sisters in an authentic way of how we may experience the world within and without, with this joyous peace of mind…what a grace! bless you all, team Trust Technique !
Fantastic, I’m looking forward learning and understanding the trust technique.
Without wishing in any way to sensationalise it, I think the ‘Trust Technique’ and the course format is incredible. The large-scale potential in its simplistic power offers tremendous hope for the accelerated understanding of animal sensitivity and communication, filling a void which currently the world screams for. “The time is now” resonates powerfully, and my overriding feeling is one of deep gratitude for its inception via James’s innate and intuitive gift, and for the strength that has allowed him to present and offer it to the wider world. It is a humble honour, and a great source of comfort to have become aware of such a tangible form of hope for the progressive development of our relationship with the redeeming qualities and inextricable beauty of animals.
I am only part way into the course but already i see a change in my dog and myself. The trust technique is helping us both to be calmer and more stable. I’m very much looking forward to the next lessons
Just finished the video course and am so grateful for the healing that came along with the teaching. A lot like the dog Morgan in the last part, I have spent the better part of 64 years so shut down around people, even family due to a violent first 5 years. Animals were my comfort zone but most of my relationships with dogs and horses were very needy and still can be. However, with the TT I am now learning what it means to take responsibility, use regard and the present moment to deepen our relationship and give the animal courage and confidence in order to be able to handle what life dishes out! And blessing of all blessings, the TT has begun to work the same for me!! My relationships with humans has improved in so many ways. Most of all, my confidence has come up enough to be able to regard my own needs, personality and character which in the past I didn’t allow. Moving forward, I can envision my life and relationships with both humans and animals blossoming into something beautiful and inviting to others in need of this help. My prayer for all of you, James, Shels and all of my companions on this way is that we may be able to share peace of mind with all we come in contact with. God bless you all! Susan Lumen
Hi James, I think this course is absolutely wonderfull! ??I just love it!? It’s beautifully made and the videos are lovely! It’s a pleasure to watch and easy to understand! Thank you, very much!?
I have just started the course and I think it’s great. The course take me step by step inte this this fantastic technique. I can do the course in My own speed, I can go back and forth, it suits me perfect.
I am in the process of soaking in and learning The Trust Technique. Wow! I am simply amazed at how the videos were filmed/created to bring one to where “you are right there experiencing the “present moment”; I can actually “feel” myself healing along with the animals.
I am excited about the Trust Technique Video Course, as I have begun to recommend to my friends. This is just the beginning of a beautiful journey. Thank you James and Shelley! Much love and appreciation, Cristi
” I have this same dream !” James is so down to earth in his character, as a student, I do not feel overwhelmed with ” getting ” what he is explaining. This awareness state of being ” present” seems so logical but as humans we make things so complicated ! James brings us ia world of ” REALITY” with his ” unthinking tips” The website is VERY EASY to navigate and professionally created with diverse tutorials, followed by examples. I too have been able to be ” present” with horse and dogs to have them ” relax, release tension” and YES LIE DOWN. This is the most magical contact we can have with our animal kingdom! JAMES !! THANK YOU !!! Lets share this with everyone on the planet and we can make this more symbosis living with each other !!
Really enjoying the video course, I am going through it for the second time, it has proved very useful and informative and i am using it alongside my other healing therapies. Thank you for setting all this up for us to access, not everyone can afford to come and do the hands on course but this video course is so very healing to watch and gives a great insight into the trust technique. Thank you both , blessed be.
A huge thank you to you both. The Trust Technique is magical and compliments The Journey work I do perfectly. The knowledge I have gained from TT has given me a stronger and more respectful connection with animals. I love the invisible lead! It was such a joyous and pleasurable course I was sad when I completed it. With love and gratitude.
Such a talent. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing you gift. Forever grateful.
for all my life my human-animal-world has been flat – now that I finished this course I know that it is round! an eye opener, a heart opener, enlightenment in the truest sense – and the greatest gift anyone could give to their pets. I can’t express my excitement, awe and gratitude for James’ and Shelley’s work. thank you guys so much for sharing. this course has changed my life, and I mean it – far beyond the deep changes in the relationship with my horse, I was enabled to let go of so much baggage… and my whole life seems to change rapidly since…
I’ve been lost in my life; not knowing what it is that I am supposed to do. I have always felt an overwhelmingly deep connection to animals, but I have never been sure what to do with it. Recently I have started a career in dog training and have been working closely with condemned aggressive dogs. Something clicked for me while working with a particularly reactive dog that led me here. I don’t have words for it yet, but this course speaks to my natural disposition and talents and I am beyond excited to explore and develop with this program. Thank you, thank you!
Alexandra de Groot
I really love the Trust Technique video course. The tutorials are very clear, and the videos are enlightening to both animal and human behavior. It has truely deepened my understanding of how animals and humans ‘work’ – starting with myself. I find this approach very grounding and it has added much depth and clarity to my former training in and practice of meditation and communication. Many thanks to James and Shelley for sharing this inspiration approach online. I hope to make it to the UK someday to do a workshop ‘in person’.
I am so delighted to have found this course online. I have been praying and intending it and now I am starting something that is as close to my heart as I am. Sofar I wish to thank you James for speaking in such a pace and clarity. Although my english is quite good, being mostly raised with english as a second language, it help me understand and learn in a better way, with ease. So not only four legged animals like the vibration rate slower….I do too. Thank you Shelley and James for this course, its trutly a wish come true. I look forward to each and every moment of it! Shalom
Reviewing section 1 which I enjoyed enough to purchase whole course
James and Shelley have put together a truly wonderful video course. It’s insight is truly invaluable. It is wonderful to get a new and different perspective on things. We have met them in person at a workshop and they are BOTH “the real deal” I am very happy to have them in my life. Thank you both very much! We look forward to seeing you both again in October for another workshop!
On my second time of watching the videos, it is a great technique and works so very well with other therapies i use. Thank you James for giving all the animals and us this lovely form of healing. Blessings to you.
I delayed submitting a review because I couldn’t find the words to express just how good it is and how far reaching it has been for myself and my animals. The gift of the relationship I now have with my animals and the healing it has afforded in me I can only thanks you most truly for
It is both humbling and heart-warming to have the privilege to explore this understanding, not only to work with it for the benefit of our dear dog – but to be able to recommend it to others. And so lovely is the experience of sharing the present moment in nature! We could not have imagined we could be closer, but it is with awe that I perceive a deepening relationship of a different kind in the dog I always thought I knew so well. I love the process. It is so beautifully simple, and subtle ~ yet so powerful. And so poignant is it to be reminded how our animals, through their own struggles, are surely the greatest guides for uncovering and appreciating important issues of our own. Thank you James and Shelley for sharing your special gifts with a very grateful community of animals and their people. Clearly, it means so much….to all of us.
I can’t express into words how the TT touched me. I watched every video with amazement and gratitude and will watch them again and again. The gentle way of the TT completely resonates with me. Seeing the evolution of every single animal in the video is so heart touching. So beautiful and wondrous to witness all the progress that these animals made. Its so clear to me that all animals and their people/environment should be working with the TT, so that peace is an evidence for all.
Thank you so much for helping out so many animals and teaching the TT all around the world.
I have watched the whole series of videos and tutorials twice now and am just about to start them again for a third time! The patience that James exudes with the animals is contagious and I feel calmer just by watching him. I have used the technique on both my dogs and they do totally “get it”, and I also tried with some blackbirds that were nesting on our decking and they too seemed to feel the connection – amazing! I will continue to use the technique with my animals whenever I can and will look to hone my skills as I progress. Thank you James!
Thoroughly enjoyable and inspiring (although shed a few tears too)!
So beautiful and touching
My experience with James French has been amazing from the first time I saw one of his YouTubes on the Trust Technique. Everything he does is done with a deep devotion to you as the learner, the animal and care giver/owner. He regards everyone with the highest of respect, patience and compassion. He is passionate about his work and that passion is contagious! I would highly recommend The Trust Technique to anyone, animal owner or not as it offers a simple yet powerful way to create peace in one’s life and the lives of others whether human or animal or both.
This is a must for all animal lovers and rescuers. This course puts together bits and pieces of knowledge and shows how to use them together giving the capability to heal animals and people.
Each time I watch your videos I am filled with hope and gratitude. You are reaching out to animals and people the world over. How many animals will have a better life because of you? Your work with the lions is so powerful. Many animal lovers can easily accept your work with horses and dogs.. but when they see that the trust technique works with wild animals, it is mind blowing. Congratulations and thank you.
I truly cannot speak highly enough of the Trust Technique. Thank you James and Shelly from the bottom of my heart for all the work that you do for animals and for putting in the time and effort to share what you have learned with others! I have worked with animals in varying capacities for years now but always felt there was something missing that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. It turns out the Trust Technique was it! It puts into clear terms what I have always felt in my heart, and then shows how to integrate the animals’ carers into the process as well. So profound and beautiful! Thank you and blessings to you! ~
After over 30 years of working with horses and dogs a whole new world has opened up to me. The video course is exceptional . Every animal is different and observing James meet every animal on it’s own terms and be mindful of what they need when they need it is mind blowing. So grateful I found you. The horses at the rescue farm I volunteer at are as grateful as I am. Thank you James and Shelly
I wanted to add to my previous review. I neglected to mention the benefits I’ve received from the Trust Technique have also been tremendous. It has made a huge impact on my life “as well” as my rescue Georgia. A fearful dog desperately in need of the present moment was rescued by a fearful owner also desperately in need of the present moment! Peace and Love to all!❤️
Such a beautiful and heartwarming video. It truly touches my heart to feel and learn about the Trust Technique Video. I love helping animals dearly. But what is such a blessing, this wonderful technique is helping me HUGELY! Thank you and many blessings!~

With some videos I became very emotional. This is exactly what I have been searching for ! You guys do a great Job !!! After the Practitioners Course I can start working with my clients on a totally different level. What I do now , does work and is very loving and gentle . But it is long term thinking ….and The Trust Technique is not a quick fix , but works really well and faster which benefits the animal tremendously and it’s owners as well ! Thank you James ! You are a fabulous Teacher
I first discovered the Trust Technique in February of 2016. I purchased the lifetime video course and watched and absorbed every minute of it. I couldn’t get enough, this spoke to me like nothing else I’ve ever experienced before. I was fully prepared to travel to England for the level one training and saw there was a 6 year wait list. I am now eagerly awaiting the completion of the online practitioner training program so I can become certified. I am also watching the entire video course for a second time. My own dog is a rescue and in the past has been very fearful of many things. I use the Trust Technique with her daily and she has made leaps and bounds with her confidence. I’ve been a professional groomer for 34 years now and while time restrictions don’t allow me to really “work” with my clients dogs when I’m grooming them, I can at least bring peace of mind, calmness and non reaction to my practice while I work. I’m so incredibly grateful for James and Shelley and what they bring to the world with their gifts. Their lights shine brightly 🙂 Love and blessings to everyone! ❤️
I have take several dog training and animal communication courses here in the United States with some of the best teachers the world has to offer. Hands down, this is my favorite course and will be the most useful course yet. I have had many years of study regarding the human and animal bond as well as the subconscious mind and James French is SPOT ON! This course has brought me “full circle” and reminded me that we really are born with all we really need, and when we stay in the moment, we can go back to the peace and understanding we had before we became our minds became cluttered with the world as we have come to know it. I cannot wait to take the next course. Thank you so much to James AND the Trust Technique Team!
The Trust Technique Video Course has given me the means to build the kind of relationship with my horses and dogs that I have always dreamed of attaining but never achieved. I’ve worked with top notch horsemen and learned much but always felt uneasy about the coercion employed. No matter how gentle it was applied the means always felt forced. Though the horses complied brilliantly most practices didn’t lead to the development of a deeper more understanding relationship. The Trust Technique opens channels of communication for mutual understand and collaborative engagement. I’m looking forward to completely the course and continuing the journey through other course offering.
Finding the Trust Technique has been one of the greatest gifts and triumphs I have experienced! Peacefulness has been a goal of mine for decades and to know that I can achieve it so quickly and that my ability to achieve it in the presence of others has been the tool I’ve unconsciously been looking for – I call it a triumph because it “trumps” the unconscious manner in the way we move through life, typically rushed and in a frenzy – unconscious in the fact that we can have such a powerful tool to use that has such impact for good in our life and the lives of others and animals. A technique that is so “simple”, powerful, quick and easy. I meditate regularly but finding out what getting present can do in an instant for humans and animals has been revolutionary for me and the animals I associate with, especially my own puppy, Oreo!
Wonderful pedagogy and gentle humour. Loving it.
The Trust technique….
This video course teaches an individual a stunningly simple (yet many layered, I am realising as I deepen into its contents) technique, to help animals find peace of mind, as they release feelings and emotions which have trapped them in a place of fear. And it works for people too!
James is an incredibly patient, gentle teacher, who shares this gift so openly. I look forward to the on-line practitioner course when it is available. In the meantime, I shall continue through the course, enjoying each moment of learning. Thank you James so much for what is truly a life changing experience.
Very interesting videos that show vey well how to use this amazing technique. Ifeel very lucky to have found them. Thank you for all this.
Trust Technique – just incredible. A simple technique which creates such amazing results. It is so interesting to watch how you relate to those you are helping. I have animals in my life – mainly horses and dogs – on a daily basis and alongside the Reiki I practice Trust Technique will be so useful. Very excited about this and look forward to the Practitioners course coming up. I shall continue to watch and learn. Thank you for the opportunity.
This stuff is Brilliant!
My gratitude has no end. Thank you!

Seeing How the Rescue Horses Match James´s Peaceful Presence with their Own, Peace & Trust as they Relax & leave earlier fear based conditioning behind & even discover innate playfulness is so Beautiful & Powerful because of its simplicity, making it Available to Anyone who Cares Enough to Use it … What A Gift for Us to Share Peace with each other & All Sentient Beings …. Thankyou James

Such a heartfelt video of Roger the Dog in Bali on so many levels; His story, the wonderful lady who gave him a home and your patient persistence in bringing the TT to him. I really felt connected with the moment and saw the immense power we all have inside to change the unrest, sadness and despair we see in the world. Peace brings peace, it is our highest calling. You have a gift you are sharing with the world, in service to so many beings.
Wonderful video of Biscuit , it really showed the mindful regard that i wasn’t quite getting and now i do, it was a perfect learning tool to see it work with Jody saying in and out helped to bring it all home , loved it so much Thank you James and Shelley love love love you both ♥♥♥
Wow, Bella….. filled with great joy that she was able to feel peace and love and great sadness that such a beautiful soul was treated so unkindly.. what powerful work you do. Thank you.
Just finished watching Biscuit the cat. Wow James, what patience you have and what a beautiful result at the end of your session. I never tire of watching you and your gentle presence really rubs off! Fabulous videos, thanks so much!!
Watched the two latest videos, the cat and Roger in Bali. The cat one is most helpful because it’s the first time I’ve understood the transitioning phase of “process.” I never was sure what to do when my dog started itching, or rolling on her back, or looking around in another direction, etc. Now I understand it’s a time for mindful regard. Thank you. As for Roger – oh my goodness. I never would have thought that animals are so mistreated in Bali. I always thought of it as an island paradise. So sad he was shot. But such a good thing to have had peace before his life ended. James and Shelley, you are the best. Looking forward to joining your on line Certification program. Help to build a new world. Shalom.
Just finished watching rescued dog Roger in Bali. It is so beautiful what you did for him in bringing him peace of mind in the final moments of his troubled life. You will always be blessed for that. Thank you James and Shelley and to all the tireless souls who work so hard in helping these poor animals.
I just watch Lady and Zack’s video again for the 3rd time as i go through them all again, I just love watching the transition of lady and the dynamic between the 2 of them changing it is so beautiful thank you ♥♥♥
First and foremost, I am so full of gratitude for having the opportunity to meet and study with James and Shelley, in California!!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful hearts and amazing gifts with us!
I have been consciously seeking peace for over 2 decades now! It was such a relief to finally have easy, step by step help to achieving peace of mind! After many years of attempting and “thinking” I was failing at meditation-because I beat myself up every time a thought came through, I have learned that the thoughts can come and go!! I love the example that you are standing in a river and thoughts can come floating towards you and you just allow them to float by-don’t focus on them and YOU ARE Practicing Peace of Mind!!! I can do that!!
Truly moving. I think I’ve cried at least some on every single video I’ve watched. I can NOT wait to meet you all in a week in NY!!!
I will be curious to see how this works on the raccoons in my barn! And of course my cats and horses, who have all had animal communicators talk to them (including myself).

For 20 years I have been searching for ´´Something´´ Gentle & Kind yet Enabling the Mutual Respect & Co-operation needed between Guide & Guided (Animal & Human) James´s Patiently Returning to Stillness & Peaceful Presence (Step 1 of T-T) is Now the Basis of my Communication with Any Sentient Being! So Much Easier than the many other Techniques I have tried. A Peaceful Mind (Accessible Only in Stillness) is the Only Thing that can Change the World says Eckhart Tolle Thank you James for making the Trust-Technique Available to Anyone who Cares Enough to Use it!
Just watched the Rehabilitation Field. Absolutely stunning! What a fabulous way to introduce rescued horses to a wonderful world of peaceful living! I wish every groom could watch this to see how sensitive horses are. Well done James and Shelley (again!)
I just watched Holly and Lexi is Section 13 and the discussion at the end is so brilliant! I’m near speechless so I should write this later but it will keep me brief! This course is tying together so many of my thoughts and lessons and beliefs not just with animals but with life and people and myself. I want to take all the courses now which means I have to find a way to get to England! It is just so amazing and thoughtful. There is not enough thoughtful in the world. We need more regard! I can’t say enough wonderful things!
Just finished watching the videos of Gulliver the dog. He was really nervous around anyone except family and barked a lot at people who were going in and out of the house. How wonderful to watch James and Gulliver’s owner work with him and see him go from scared and not trusting to allowing new people to pet him and feeling good about it. By doing the Trust-technique the whole human family and animal family’s lives will have changed for the better bringing more peace of mind to everyone. Beautiful to watch and see how powerful this technique is. Love it.
Just finished watching for the second time the 7 videos of Ingrid and the dog Bella that she rescued from the streets of Katmandu. Wow. From the beginning James comes into find a very scared dog Bella that never new human kindness and to her humans were something to be frightened of and to stay clear of to a very happy Bella looking forward to walking with Ingrid and meeting other dogs and being pet and loved. So amazing what the trust-technique can do if we all just take the time to work with our animals. I keep thinking of what James says, Peace, patience and persistence. It is so lovely to see this. We also learn from using this technique how to be more loving, kind, non judgmental, caring and patient with ourselves. It surely shows me how to really really slow down myself and my thinking and bring peace to myself and the animals. Watching these videos always brings me to a really heartfelt place. Thank you James.

Just finished watching the videos again of Daisy the used to be noisy door answerer. The trust-technique is so helpful for the animals and the great by product is it also helps change the animals person too. It brings awareness to the humans about how their energy and being in turn affects their animal. Many people won’t sit down to mediate for 20 plus minutes a day but can easily use the trust-technique in helping their animal and then as a by product receive much peace and relaxation within themselves. Who doesn’t want that! As James says “Peace, patience and persistence.” This is life changing for everyone. Love it.
James & Shelley ~ I am so glad I took the Platinum free day and watched this extraordinary video! What I gained from watching you work with this amazing but deeply wounded lion was enough to take the next steps of learning to work more effectively with my own animals. I do understand now, in a deeper way than ever before, that it is our privilege to be invited into an animal’s “space” and to facilitate their emotional healing. Watching Ares heal and go on to become the healthy being he is touched me to the core. I’m looking forward to learning so much more ~ I feel I have a long way to go. Thank you again for sharing your technique with us and not keeping it a secret!
Just finished watching agin the Katz Castle kittens and their mom videos. Loved seeing how they changed with James using the Trust Technique and how they started trusting and really loving being stroked. It is so wonderful. Loved seeing when the new owner of one of the kittens came in and how she was able to learn something about herself when interacting with her animals. Was a great aha when she got “I am thinking, cat isn’t relaxing to I am at peace and cat is purring and eyes closed”. Had tears in my eyes for the mom cat and the new owner and James helping the mom through losing her kitten and the gratitude and love the new owner had for the mother. Just love it. Thank you James.
Just finished watching again the first 6 videos of Bella and Grace at Hope Farms. It is so beautiful to see how they start to learn to feel good in the presence of humans and start to trust after going through such cruelty and neglect at the hands of humans. They are so forgiving. I love to watch how using the Trust Technique can make such a huge impact on the animals and how it also gives hope to the humans who are there to help them. I love learning this and thank you James for sharing this. Such a gift.
I have had the pleasure to interact with rescue horses at This Old Horse for about 6 months. I did not understand at the time why I could settle a horse down by connecting to the ground as my wife explained to do. I started this program and watched the videos James has so eloquently put together. At first I wondered if I was doing the TT correctly. As I went further along James demonstrated and explained that I was doing it right by being in the moment and being patient. I have learned more how to read the horses better and not to give them more then they can handle. The further along I move in this program the more at ease and patient I become. My wife is amazed at the changes in our Boxers and how relaxed they have become. I appreciate the calmness that James exhibits and his demonstrations. I am looking forwards to visiting James to learn more and become a practitioner . There is so much that people and the animals can experience that they are now aware of. Thanks for your time in putting this amazing program together James. You have me smiling one moment and tears the next!
I’ve watched all the course and loved every minute and now I’m going back again (and again, and again). Just finished watching Zabbar the racehorse and it was quite amazing how quickly he accepted all the things that had previously stressed him, once you lowered his mind. I spent 16 years backing yearlings for the racing industry and always did it with kindness and patience but how I missed out! Oh James, where were you then???
Just watched James with Bobby and Pudding. Oh my. I love the Trust Technique and was brought to tears of joy watching how trusting these horses became. They get to have a new lease on life, let go of their past and learn to trust again and just be horses. I am so grateful for these videos and how we can help change so many animals lives for the better.
This course is amazing. When I signed up I knew I would love it, but I did. not realize how much good it will be for my own personal growth. To be able to bring a state of peace to myself and then to be able to help our four legged friends as well is truly a blessing of grand proportion. Thank you so much for bringing the technique to the planet. 🙂
Just finished watching all the videos of Shanti the Bear. So heartwarming watching James working with her and seeing her progress and trust come out. Loved when she started eating and then making her bed and moving things around. Wow. After not being able to move for years to being free to be the beautiful bear she is and heal from such abuse and trauma. Love the trust technique and what you are doing helping all these lovely animals. Thanks for adding these videos to the course. I learn something overtime I watch the videos even when I watch more than once. Such a gift.
Just finished watching the videos of Monte the 6 month old cub who started life with everything against him. Wow. I love the trust technique and what James does. He went from a very scared, depressed, resigned baby bear to a trusting, happy, engaging bear after the trust technique. I know there are other modalities but I love this one. The animal gets to trust and heal and the human also gets to be in a peaceful meditative state so it is great for all involved. Thank you for going to be with the bears. I had donated money where you could pick things to buy for the bears like the bed, toys so to see it now is so heartwarming.
I have just managed to watch the video on the bears in Vietnam. What an incredibly moving and beautiful experience to witness. I was aware of the Animal’s Asia charity for many years and bought a book about the moon bears being used for their bile. Reading it disgusted me. Now watching the video and seeing what progress they are making and continue to make is so uplifting. I wish them the very best in China. The Trust Technique is amazing!!!!
Wow. I have donated money for many years to Animal’s Asia. I was so happy to hear that James and Shelley were going to help the bears. Just watched the first video. It was so inspiring and wonderful to see. I am so thankful for what you are doing to help these wonderful beings who have gone through such a sad and horrible life. Just watching the first video made me so happy to know these bears will not only thrive with what Jill’s group is doing but will become emotionally healthier and learn to trust again. Love the trust-technique and can’t wait to see all the other videos. Thank you so much for what you do for the animals. Lovely.
I am so incredibly impressed with the Trust Technique. I am also deeply moved to make this my lifes work. I am currently only at the beginning of Section 6 but have seen incredible results both within myself and my own dog. I have also been working with a dog at a local rescue. So far good results, despite the disruptive environment. I will be making a change in my approach when I go back tomorrow so hopefully the progress will jump ahead. My feelings of admiration and respect for what James is doing is immense and I hope to follow in his footsteps. Thank you James!
Just finished watching the moon Bear videos, I didn’t want it to end , seeing those beautiful souls survive that horrible life to eventually be rescued and then to meet you both. To see the change in them all , i love the play energy and to see them start to be integrated . Lovely and i hope more pictures will be sent to watch their growth, thank you James and Shelley 🙂
Thank you for your inspiring work, and the videos you are able to get showing how healing it is for animals of every species. A great addition to your series and to your beautiful ministry to the world.
Fabulous result with Monty! To see him out in the paddock with two friends and behaving like a normal young bear should, just fills my eyes with tears. It’s impossible to thank you all enough for everything that you are doing for these beautiful animals and to know that you are leaving all your wisdom and technique behind to carry on the good work. Bless you all!
I am so excited to be watching your work with the Moon bears and it is so incredibly moving. What you are able to achieve with Shanti in the first section is truly amazing. The Universe knew you were needed to help these bears and everything conspired to put it into place. Bless you.
This is really great stuff, well done to all the Moon Bear team, really motivates me thank you James and Shelley x
James as I have started going over the videos again , this one with the kittens has really touched my heart , how many times do you see kittens taken from their mothers with no regard for their feelings , this was so beautiful I have gratitude tears thank you ?
i am listening to the animal communication tutorial again under the trust-technique. I am having so many insights and understandings at a deeper level than when I listened before. James makes it so easy to understand how the communication works. I have taken many course and read many books that didn’t work for me so finding James is so refreshing and exciting. When I am listening to these tutorials I become very excited knowing that I can do this. I love these videos and the trust-technique. Thank you James
I really can’t say enough about this! First off the course is easy to navigate on line. You don’t have to spend lots of time trying to get to the course material. Having said that I have only finished up to this point but this work is life changing for human and animals. I am an psychiatric R.N. who has had a healing practice using various modalities for 17 years. I can tell you that this connects the dots. This is how we were designed to communicate with each other and our Creator can communicate with us. Once we know and use this, think of the healing for humans and animals and for the planet. I don’t know where this knowledge will take me but I am open and grateful for this work and for James French.
Hi James, I have been practising the present moment for a week now , and decided to share with the herd of horses while standing in one paddock.
It is a wonderful experience at different levels, I am becoming more open to their reality , instead of projecting with my mind.They are relaxing more day after day, last time 4 of them layed down next to me.
I am more aware of their individual pace , as they don’t react differently at different times, and I am becoming more receptive to their specific need of release.
I had a very special experience with my own mare who went into deep relaxation with rolling of her eyes and twitching of her legs.
My intuition told me she was releasing the tension in our relationship caused by my mind when I connect with her.
Great teaching and healing for both of us, the opportunity to open a deeper level of trust between us!
The teaching of the videos and tutorials are great , I am making my way step by step now in the section 3.
Thank you so much…
Wonderful. Love listening to James voice sharing about how to be in the present moment. The tutorial is so easy to understand, the bullet points show just enough of what we need to do or know and the exercise we are learning is not only going to be great when I am with the animals but for my own life too. Love it.
It is such a gift to have come about the Trust Technique. What a beautiful story about Bella to see her finding such peace and how moving it was to see the beautiful trusting expression on her face and the joy it bought to the humans. At least she met death as a happy soul. This is a wonderful technique which I know will be life changing. I have started exploring this technique on a traumatised Arabian Stud stallion (though he is now gelded). ON the point of despair because I had tried everything and praying for a way forward and the Trust technique is that way. Thank you
Amazing work and I can’t believe the change in my dog. It is like night and day and this program has made all the difference. I would like to credit James for his work, knowledge and breakthroughs that he has made and then his desire to share it. My heart has always been with animals and now I know the effect we can have with them. Wonderful!
Well done! This video course is awesome and has me connected, excited and amazed at my progress and how easy it is to understand James’ methods through his patient and peaceful way of teaching. I have not finished yet but just wanted to share how much I am loving it so far! Two years ago I bought Act 1 and never was able to grasp it probably because I learn better visually but now I can go back to that and catch on in a snap thanks to the videos in the TT. Thank you!!
James I appauld what you and the mane chance sanctuary are doing
My kids have joked with me that I must give off animal pheremones because what you do came to me so naturally. I have always addressed any animal that I deal with with respect. I listen to them because they are “speaking” just not in a language we can hear, so you have to listen and watch, observe that much more.
Each animal has their own nature, just like kids do if people really understood that their animals would be treated differently for the most part, one would hope
LOVED LOVED LOVED the Tiger Lily video !!!! I thought I had been doing the Trust Technique wrong but instead I need to slow down! Also I can direct it to my horses sore parts….and a routine of 20minutes a day for a month …..James YOU are so freaking cool! Gotta get my ass to England ….lol.
The Trust Technique is such an amazing process, and thank you for sharing it with so much depth in a very high quality of content with the videos! I’m watching the entire series for my second time so far, and getting even more from it! James is so clear and patient, and the many case examples show how anyone who applies the method can see results. My own animals (and some wild animals) have been responding already, and it is very interesting to know that such a deeper level of trust and connection is possible, and that YOU can learn to have this with your animals.
I’m loving all your videos…..love all your work!!!!
The Trust Technique video course has helped my nervous cat and me tremendously. Since I started getting present, Sister has become very affectionate and allows me to pick her up and play roughly with her, things she never tolerated before, and these changes came about immediately after learning how to get present. The other day she came to me and started rubbing her head against mine the way a horse would rub on a fence post. She went on and on, not the usual, brief feline head bump that she often gives me. I was amazed. Sister now brings me the cat toys and often asks to be held. I see how my own anxiety has affected my cats and the horses I work with, and I’m inspired to relax and stay present so that all my relationships will improve. What a wonderful gift.
Love, love, love your videos. I’m addicted, this is my second go around of watching them. Would you be interested in coming to Canada to teach the professional course?
I can feel a shift in myself as I watch these videos, then my cat and dog drop and go sleepy.
I’m also noticing my daily schedule go smoother and my attitude more placid and positive.
Can’t wait for mor videos. <3
Wow!! I am on Section 14 and just LOVE the videos and am learning so much!
I just finished the one with Peppa the dog and laughed soooo hard…. It was like a Fawlty Towers and loved seeing the both sessions with all the real life craziness that goes on in this lovely woman’s life!!
I’ve taken notes on all the videos and then transcribed them to my computer so I have all the notes to read again and again. Also have tried out the Trust Technique with some dogs and horses and it is wonderful to see the changes~ Thanks for making wonderful videos. You are peaceful, calm and a fabulous teacher!
LOVE love love this technique…..this is my second go around through the videos……I’m addicted to them! I’m finding getting peaceful is making More intuitive ,and I’m having More synchronistic moments with people and events around me. So COOL!
All I have to say is James and Shelley, you are amazing! Thank you for all you are doing. I have a lifetime of gently working with animals, and it’s nice to have more in depth education on everything I did not have labels or more thorough education on. The course is spectacular, and far more than I ever imagined. I am happy to be learning more! I always knew there was more to the picture for all of us.
Thank you this is really helpful – I will be watching this several times 🙂
I knew I wanted to work with animals, I just wasn’t sure in what capacity until the very moment I started your online course. My life is changed forever, thanks to the Trust Technique. The bonus to using the Trust Technique with my cats is that I have become more peaceful myself – A million thanks…..
It works…Thanks so much. Great content, and your voice is very relaxing….
James thanks for the opportunity to see your work. I saw you on a news special. I do similar work here in the Midwest USA. Having been an empathic intuitive all my life, I’ve committed to supporting the human species in allowing for global solutions by imitating nature, present in the moment, allowing space for all other energy and experiencing the joy through gratitude. At this time my process has evolved over the 40+ yrs to canines training with their partners and I have a special spot for all species with PTSD. Your work affirms my hypothesis. My tag- Respect to Connect.
I want to thank-you so much for this introduction to the technique! I believe that this is certainly a beautiful and exceptional way to help any breed of animal with healing from human abuse; or simply releasing any fears that they may have. With patience and sharing their existence by acknowledging their fears and showing them a way to face those fears, they truly come to understand the language. Again thank-you!
I really liked the way you described the difference between thoughts and thinking.
So far I’m finding this video presentation very moving and confidence building. The guidance for bringing yourself into the present moment is very useful. I’ve practiced many techniques with many teachers, and this feels so simple and yet effective. Thank you.
Only negative thing is that the questions don’t appear to have answers, but Im sure there must be a reasonable explanation.
thank you, I really hope this technique goes far and wide, I do believe if this was taught in schools the world would be a better place. deb
Absolutely wonderful. I do something similar with my students who have aroused or sensitive dogs. But you gave me much more to work with and I think the most important thing is why it works. Thank you so much for sharing this. It is priceless when working with not only animals, but the handlers as well.
The videos with the animals brought tears to my eyes. My heart bursts with love and joy when I see an animal learn to trust. The practice of being in the present is a gift. Thank you for breaking it down into simple steps.
I’m enjoying the variety of examples and case studies provided (animals, situations, human personalities, etc.). I also appreciate the points stated to practice, peace, and persistence. Humans tend to want a quick fix but when teaching the Trust Technique, you help them slow themselves down, which in turn supports their own success as well as their connection with the animal. Lovely.
Absolutely amazed at how simple this is but how profound the results. I will be using this with my new horse and our donkey (who has trust issues from past traumas I am sure), as well as with nature & helping to calm myself! Thank you so much James for making this freely available. I will be saving up to become a subscriber.
I found it extremely informative & plan to try this with my horse who until choosing me for he’s owner had had many life issues, trauma & I believe aggression played a big part of he’s life. Now that he is with me, life is much freer & simply, I am allowing him to rest & enjoy life.
I’m sobbing as Bella’s story comes to an end. The thought of what these magnificent animals endure at the hands of mankind is gut wrenching. The work you are doing is so amazing! You truly are a gift from God! I look forward to learning more about the technique and putting it into practice with my own animals.. Thank you for the work you are doing!!!
I wish I had found the trust technique years ago. I have been on the weekend course and just been through all the sections on the video course for the first time. Trust Technique is changing my and my horses’ lives for the better. It works better than any other teaching method and without any stress or upset to the animal (quite the reverse in fact). Both my horses laid down in the field with me yesterday and today and went to sleep. It is an amazing experience and very humbling. The videos and tutorials make it very clear and easy to follow and use on my own animals.
It is impossible to put into words how much I loved this program but I will try. James shows us how to be peaceful, aware, and present and then amazing things happen. It really is life changing to both animals and people. I will use what I learned here for the rest of my life and I so appreciate all that I have learned.
Wow feeling inspired by these videos and by this tutorial – my new ambition is to meet Ares with his new friend 🙂 so uplifting to watch him playing – makes me happy 🙂
This tutorial is so brilliant! It breaks down the process for someone new to it into such clear stages, and makes it so understandable and so accessible.
By giving a framework to look at a problems, the problem becomes less scary and therefore easier to take on. The ‘what’ and ‘how’ process gives a chance to develop a solution in stages, which again is not too daunting. Suddenly realisation dawns and problems morph into opportunities.
It is also a chance to be kind to yourself, by working back to the historic source of hang-ups and remove them to forestall future problems.
This technique is absolutely amazing and it works. James is a very special teacher with a very special background and I am happy to do this and ACT1 with him. This technique is not only beautiful for animals, but for our own development, and for communication with everything. It works for people, children, plants, I am sure. Thanks !!!!!
James French shares his wonderfully intuitive, instinctive and peaceful approach towards animals with us through the Trust Technique, enabling us to create an open and honest deep connection with the animals we are privileged to share our lives with. To live in Harmony with them. The Trust Technique is an exeptionally beautiful form of communication and healing as it awakens our innate primal instincts, allowing us to develop a true affinity with and sensitivity towards all animals. Thank you so very much James, being a member is such a pleasurable journey, I highly endorse Trust Technique membership to everyone.
I cannot say enough on how happy I found thie trust technique and this unique Animal Rescue Organization. As owner of a successful pet massage business I have enrolled in many behavior courses, dog training, and numerous alternative healing modalities, but this seems the easiest and most logical. Have seen too many training programs that were either all theory or dominant-based. Although I have just started program, have wonderful results with one of my problem cats. I will be glad to be lifetime member and my goal is to become qualified practitioner here in the U.S.A. to teach a different approach to solving behavior problems. Highly recommend!
Having completed the tutorials a while ago, I am now going through the updated versions and finding them excellent. The Trust Technique has not only helped my animals (some amazing results) but has also helped me too. Highly recommended.
I am very impressed with the alterations to instructions 1 and 2, for becoming present. I found it an easy method with great results. Trust Technique is a brilliant system. Thank you James and Shelley, this System will go from strength to strength. Love and blessings, Marion Davies
Dear James, I want to share a wonderful experience with the Trust Technique. Two Weeks ago, I gave a Tellington TTouch clinic for dogs and their people. One of the participating dogs was very nervous and could keep still. he was whining most of the time and his person had trouble keeping him calm and quiet. In the afternoon of the first day, I wanted to share the TT with the group. I led them into the present State in that I had them focus on the tactile sense, on the visual sense and then on the hearing. And as I told them to focus on a noise (the 3rd step) the nervous dogs threw himself on the floor and gave a deep sigh and was quiet. It was amazing! Thanks for that! Katrien
15 months ago I adopted Barney, a labrador from a shelter – hed been handed in as a stray so I dont know his full history. Working with a dog behaviourist helped with some basic stuff (he was my first ever dog) but she had nothing that helped his seperation anxiety. A friend told me about James, Shelley suggested I start with the online lessons while waiting for the consultation with James. These were very helpful even before James came then invaluable in coaching me to keep up the work wed started with his help. I have recommended this course and James to every dog owner I know – it is great teaching!
Ive recently acquired a standard bred gelding named Neiko who was unfortunately neglected and mishandled. He went from a calm trail horse to a horse that spooks at anything, among other things. The woman who rescued him 3 yrs ago did a great job of restoring his physical health, but his mental/emotional health is still all twisted up. I spent my first morning with him using the Trust Technique with fantastic results…his barn mate Pro enjoyed the benefit as well. Neiko did not lay down, but he moved to stand by me, and took a standing nap. Pro was also dozing in his stall next door. Wonderful! Im so delighted to have found this technique!
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
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…!
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.
We have to work with nervous horses every day and we are so happy that we have learnt a way to treat them that involves no fear or force and where the animal is listened to. There is no chance of being kicked or dragged around, no need for halters and ropes and pressue which so often is harsh and punishes the horse. Our horses and ponies are much more relaxed and we can read them better, Rosie is still doing great every day and is almost ready to have a headcollar on happily after 2 years or being so frightened that she would regularly rear up at me and it took me nearly an hour each time. Now i can appoach her in the field and rub her ears 🙂 the best thing i have ever learnt 🙂 sophie
I have been studying different techniques for working with horses for the past 35 years. I have to be honest and say I have used dominant behaviour on horses but with as much kindness as possible. However, I have always know there was a better way. I have never given up the search for this better way which I now know to be called the Trust Technique. It is absolutely right as James says that less is more. I have had to be really patient and fully understand and practice wach part of the process before going onto the next step. Already though I am seeing a far better relationship develing between my dogs, horse and me. Thankyou to James, Shelley and the chap doing the filming.
I had a riding accident 19 Aug 2009. I had 3 lessons with James and my fear has gone! Im happy to ride my new horse in the school or out, on my own. I spent 8mths trying to move forward and 3 2hr lessons with James and Im almost sorted. Now were working on the speed issue ie cantering and galloping which I cant wait to do. It was never about my horse, he wasnt even the one I had the accident on, it was all me and something has changed in me. I feel peaceful, calm and knowing of my horse on a deep intuitive level that my fear had blocked me picking up. James helped me dissolve that block. Happy Days.
