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!

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.

Trust Technique is the key to a peaceful life between animals and humans. It is so helpful to make everything regarding a life full of love, peace and harmony so much easier. I’m very happy that I was led to find the way to the work of James and his team. Feeling FEAR ful for the future.

I used this to help me with a new horse who was nervous, but it also helped my other horse release tension and enjoy his life more. It also has now helped my daughters new rescue dog and my dogs too. I would not have thought this special type of meditation could have so much impact. Its like turning off a blaring TV set when we quiet our minds, the animals go “Whew! Finally, some peace” and can relax. I have never seen real magic before that works for me and my family too. Love, love, love the trust technique. It should be taught to all children, so they can use this understanding in their everyday lives. Imagine whenever there was a problem we all got present for a few minutes to settle and consider before or during a problem solving session. This is revolutionary work and will help so many animals and humans. I think you should get a knighthood for it. Bless you Sir James and Shelley.


This course has quite literally been a life changer for my animals and for me. By simply getting present with my standard poodle, Panda. I have been able to teach him things that traditional training methods couldn’t. Through realization learning and our daily routine of getting present together and practicing creative reaction, our relationship has deepened exponentially. Panda now looks to me to determine how he should feel in many situations, and I am able to move forward in helping him to feel peaceful around other animals. I feel as if we have developed a trusting bond that feels like a true partnership.
I have also been working with our three parrots (two budgies and a quaker) and they have taught me so much about their process. Our budgies came to us very wild and even after one year, they were not warming up to me. After our third Trust Technique session, they now allow touch and have even started asking to come up on my shoulder. Thank you, James, for everything you do!! And now, on to the animal communication course. 🙂

Dear TT team, the trust technique came my way following my request for help (search online) to improve the relationship with my rescue dog and to be able to offer him what he needed/needs based on trust. It felt so natural to work/be with animals this way, with respect, attention, time and a peaceful mind. Living with a very sensitive rescue dog based on mutual trust and respect has given me so much new valuable insights (and lessons), we have both grown so much and still do. Thank you James and Shelley for your enormous contribution, knowledge, commitment and involvement to make such a difference in so many lives, animals and humans, I am very grateful for your work and the opportunity to participate (learn and grow)
Very much looking forward to taking the Animal communication and Crossfield classes after this video course and when ready my wish to apply for the Practitioner course next year! My intention, also to be able to help other animals, making a difference from survival to a peaceful life.

Warm regards, Hannah
