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.

Love the new course content and structure!

So much goodness and wisdom and love here. Its an honour to be part of this wonderful community



Gosh where to start!

Thank you so much James and Shelly for providing such a beautiful course.

I have learnt such a lot, and loved to see all of the animals that you have both helped to overcome so many traumas.

The Trust Technique has been designed to bring peace and harmony to troubled souls – both animal and human, and help develop trusting relationships. The course is very in-depth, with plenty of consultations where we can see the positive effects of mindful regard, creative reaction and trusted cooperation in action.

It is invaluable in creating a relationship between the human and animal, and in my humble opinion, everyone should learn how to do this. In my particular case, I plan to open an animal sanctuary, which would not be possible if I did not have a grater understand of working with animals.

I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone who has or likes to interact with animals in any way.

A must for the greater awakening of humanity.


Thank you, I have learnt so much about animals and also myself. The course was very very comprehensive, and concepts that at first I did not grasp, were covered within the videos in a variety of ways, to truly embed the information into my consciousness, and in turn, my subconscious. Beautifully presented with compassion and warmth. Thank you James and Shelly, once again.


This course is extremely informative. It gave me the information I needed to address the behavioral issues in my animals calmly and efficiently. I enjoy the fact that there is no pressure or dominance in any of the teachings. Most animal handling techniques I’ve learned used either systems of dominance or some sort of pressure and release. It is so refreshing to see something that is cooperative instead of commanding. I’m grateful for what these videos have taught me, and I’m looking forward to improving my relationship with my animals!

Love, love, love this program. I am so grateful to everyone that was involved w/ creating this video program of the Trust Technique. I have a rescue dog that has many challenges from her experiences when she was a pup. We have worked with many top internationally renown dog trainers and I never really felt like we were addressing the core of her anxieties. I even had a vet recommend putting her on Prozac and I can honestly say, there were many days that I was ready to give up and put her on it. I even went as far as getting the prescription filled. But now I no longer feel the need.

Now that I have found the Trust Technique, she has been making tremendous progress and I’m confident that we will be able to overcome all of her challenges. I don’t know what we would have done if we had not found this truly amazing and inspiring program.

Not only is the TT amazing, the way the online program is set up is top notch. The videos are in bite size chunks so it’s easy to make progress even if you only can squeeze in 30 minutes at a time. The buttons on the videos where you can go back or forward 10 seconds is also super helpful. I’ve done many video courses and this production is second to none. The videos of the consults will bring tears of joy to any animal lover’s eyes. What these animals were able to overcome using the TT was simply amazing.

As an added bonus it has improved my tennis game. I’m able to stay focused on the ball and keep my mind calm during and after points. Who would have thought that what I’m doing for my dog would help my tennis game 🙂
