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. 

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 course has taken about 5 months to complete. It has been one of the most profound learnings of working with animals that I have ever taken, Animal Reiki being another. I started grooming a new horse (to me) in January. Her guardian was concerned she was unhappy as she’d had a difficult past and her last owner of 6 years couldn’t keep her any longer. She’s about 14. What this course has taught me is to be patient &, persistent in being peaceful with myself and her. I no longer put pressure on her to meet my expectations- I just keep using the present moment technique and hope for a breakthrough of her trusting me, and me trusting her. I truly wish every animal guardian, or anyone responsible for an animal’s well being knew about this modality. It even works in personal relationships. I am beyond grateful to James & Shelley and everyone involved in getting this teaching out there.


The Trust Technique is one of the best things I have learned in my life. I am a Reiki teacher and Theta Healing practitioner. While those modalities are great within themselves or in combination, I always felt something was missing. Now I found the missing PEACE!
For 30 years, I have had animals and have been involved in rescuing cats, dogs, and wildlife. I wish I had known what I now know earlier. (…)
As a next step, I would like to take the practitioner course. (…)
James, Shelly, and the rest of the team, thank you so much for putting that course together. I can only imagine the work and hours that went into painstakingly cutting and editing the footage, putting together the course, and breaking everything down into small, comprehensible steps for us to learn. I think I’ll start the course all over again ….
Much Love and Light


Hi my name is Kim, I am a riding instructor and immediately started using the trust technique with my lesson horses. One in particular had started spooking with riders who were hesitant(which most beginners are). I think the hesitation feeling made the horse so uncomfortable it caused him to bolt, the last thing you need with a horse that gives lessons. I started his retraining with what I had learned in the course even though I had just started the course. The horse quickly learned how nice it felt and it would only take seconds for him to go into present moment. I would even use present moment when I was riding if I felt tension in him. Stetson, the horse, is back to giving lessons and if he gets nervous we do a bit of present moment and go on with the lesson. I don’t think without Trust Technique I could have gotten Stetson safe enough to let beginners work with him like I have. I am truly amazed how this technique calmed this horse down. This course is a game changer for my lesson and training program! Sincerely Kim


This has truly been the best animal course I have ever taken. I have never resonated with the Alpha method of training. I have had many dogs in my life and horses. I wish I would have had this knowledge when I was a horse girl!,
James is a gift to humanity. His insight into the intelligence and emotions of animals and people is profound. I have so much gratitude for this knowledge and I have begun to slowly work with my three dachshunds. I can see the difference in them already. I am so inspired by the charities mentioned in this course. Soi Dog and Animals of Asia. It is so beautiful the work that James and Shelley and all those amazing volunteers are doing to help so many tortured animals. I am considering taking the practitioner course. This is information the world needs to embrace. Humanity has been so cruel to so many animals for so very long. Things need to change as they need to in almost all earthly matters. This is part of our great awakening! Thank you for this life changing thought provoking course!
