A life changing video course!

This video course opens your mind to a world of possibilities where animal intelligence can be discovered in an environment of trust and confidence.

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.

Course structure

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.


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


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!

Course Benefits

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.

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.

I enjoyed the video course very much and I think, your findings of the “present moment” and “mindful regard” are pioneer work of a similar importance as the work of Konrad Lorenz’ (1903 – 1989) the ethologist and ornithologist, who discovered imprinting. While K. Lorenz’s findings reflect the instinctual level of animal life, your findings explore a psychological level. (I am not including the spiritual level). I hope your work will be acknowledged in science. “Present Moment” and “Mindful Regard” reflect the basic concepts of all psychotherapies (from behaviourism to psychoanalysis). The sections of the video course, which are designed for humans are based on a behaviouristic approach. The fact that animals are able to heal themselves from traumatic experiences by reaching a zero-state of deep relaxation, which relates to their early infancy, is astonishing and well demonstrated and explained. Thanks for your perseverance, patience and precision.


Very in-depth and informative course with many many hours of live demonstrations of how the techniques work with a variety of animals.

I have been able to put the training into practice right from the start of the course. During my studies, I had to stop for a while as my rescue dog became very distressed with the sounds of dogs barking or whining on the videos. By applying the techniques, I was able to gradually get her used to the videos so that she no longer reacted once I’d asked her to sit. She was able to be peaceful whilst I watched!

I have also been able to help friends with their dogs by introducing them to the Messages of Trust course, and they have also been able to see amazing results for themselves and their pets.

I recommend the Trust Technique to people all the time and highly recommend the training for anyone who wants to help their animals with any issues. It has certainly deepened my bond with my own dog, and has been immensely helpful through many challenging situations, including nearly a month of fireworks for weddings at a local venue, Diwali and Guy Fawkes, followed by Christmas and New Year celebrations.


Dear James
I was and I am absolutely fascinated by your technique and your whole work for the animals, which is perfectly shown in this video course. You and your team are a class of it’s own and the fact that you share all the steps to a new partnership with animals is just unique in this world. I grew up with all kinds of animals, worked for 30 years as veterinarian and I’m now running a dog and a cat shelter. (…)

I thank you from my heart for this profound knowledge and wishing you all the best with your work and hope that you will touch more people in this world with your understanding how the cooperation between animals and humans can be.
Kindest regards


I started my journey with Trust Technique because I was curious about the method. I am a Yoga facilitator/Reiki Master and love to work with energy, so this was an obvious choice in my search to find a way to best help a 10-year-old blind deaf pug that I rescued 3 years ago. Rocky had spent his life being doted on by his previous owners, he was their baby, until one day his owners got too old to take care of him. They had to either re-home him or else have him put to eternal rest. And along came Suz!
Rocky was very confused, anxious and insecure when I brought him home, and for a year, life was very difficult, he’d become very anxious and distressed trying to keep tabs on me all day! It became dangerous in the kitchen, he was always around my feet.
So, finding a way to help me to help Rocky would be or so I thought, a task. But, this add kept jumping up on my laptop………I loved this approach, it looked like the perfect answer, and, I didn’t even have to go looking, it came to me!
despite Rocky’s blindness and deafness, he responds well, I do have to practice with him every day in order for him to fully feel secure without being attached to my leg!
And even in the evening, I get present in order to calm him so he can relax by the fire, and I too can do the same!

Thank you James for your gentle guidance.
My next challenge is to work at socialising my daughter’s collie with my cat, that should be fun!
Blessings Susan.

Hello James,
I have just completed the Video Course. Through a zooming session by Ann Suvee, I became interested in this technique. I have a Gordon Setter and have had a rehomed dog, a Ridge Back, for about a year now. With quite a trauma in her past. The dogs together do not tolerate each other optimally, but by applying the TTechnique over and over again, things are improving little by little. I will now also follow the animal communication course with you, and who knows, maybe one day the practitioner course. All in all, I have learned a lot from you. Thank you so much!

With kind regards,

Mariette Koelma
