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!

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 found this course to be so inspirational having initially felt it was just another course and I’d probably end up feeling disappointed like all the other courses I have tried but was pleasantly surprised to discover a whole new way of treating animals that actually worked and was so gentle in its process. I do believe that James has got a special way with animals and so glad he has brought it out to the world and the work he and Shelley are doing to help animals worldwide and teach this process to others so they can help their animals is a gift beyond measure.
I do think this is the way to treat all animals and hope that this will grow so more people are able to follow it instead of the ‘traditional’ ways that animals are trained which can leave a lot to answer for!
The videos were so heart-warming to watch but also some heart-breaking at the same time.
I feel I now have the tools to help my animals when they need it and myself which will be a beautiful journey.
Thank you so much for bringing this out into the world.


Hi all,
I just love the Trust Technique and the Trust Technique Video Course.
I have a life long membership and watch the Course at the hole for the third time now and even if I do know all the videos I detect small things or subtle hinches, which I didn´t caught watching the course the last time.
And sometimes if I´m really stressed out and annoyed , I just watch the consultations and let the Peace of Mind “drop out” of the video and let the magic work on me. :-))))
What I love about the Trust Technique is, that it is all about connection, clearity and respect and of course trust. It´s a love ly and easy way to grow personally, for yourself as well as for your animals. And it´s so successful because you allow the otherone to be as he is, not judging him but offering him a way, how to be peaceful and confident in all kind of situations. And it´s soft, kind, regarding, loveing AND easy.

All the Best and thanks for this great work :-))))


I have been very privileged to have exposed to the Trust Technique. I was taking the course for my senior cat, Woody, with multiple health problems. He was an outdoor and indoor cat. I had evenings to introduce him to the Trust Technique, and he would always curl-up to sleep on his scratch pad, after lots of brushing. Over time, he seemed to want generally desire more company from me. He had to have his tail washed daily, as his sebaceous glands required ‘squeezing’. We used butter as his reward. Usually he would run away quickly, afterwards, but after working with the Technique, he would stay and have a body scrub.
He was doing very well, taking all his medications, when one Saturday morning, his hind legs became paralyzed. He was in a lot of pain, and we sadly had him euthanized two weeks shy of his 17th year. He was so distressed with the pain and the journey to the vet, that he was panting, and I was unable to calm him at that time. However, I feel that he benefited from the Technique with the short time I had to work with him and for that I am so grateful.
I have thoroughly enjoyed all the teachings and videos, and constantly wish I had been exposed to this many years ago. However, every time I listen to the teachings and watch the videos, my heart has been touched with the beauty, sensitivity, patience and insight that James brings to animals in distress to enable them and their owners to work together as a team. The Trust Technique is compassion in action.


I have enjoyed every minute of this course from start to finish, it’s such a simple teqnique and the kindest way to help an animal to learn, it’s also very beneficial to humans as well by helping you to work through some of the thoughts that may be blocking you and creating a lovely connection with an animal.
I’ve learnt such alot about why animals behave the way they do and how they think. Thank you so much for giving us the Trust Technique.

Thank you this was a great course. There were so many little things that I picked up in learning more on difficult animals as some would call. it was very informative I refer back to it often.
