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. 

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.

I am deeply touched by the Trust Technique and the opportunity to explore it together with my dog. It definitely affects our relationship in a beautiful way. It is such a soft and natural way of being together. Every time I go through this course, I experience it as new and learn more. Thank you so much!


I am not unfamiliar with the world of thought that I dived into with the TT video course, yet so far in my life I have not understood how to really live the principle of connection and security in EVERY relationship! Again and again I was insecure and driven by thoughts like: “if you don’t want to, then you won’t”, which made me cut the connection. I used to live this way very often in my human relationships (because this is how I experienced and “learned” in my family of origin), but fortunately I was able to change it in the course of my life. With my dogs, however, until recently I was still stuck with the idea of achieving their willingness in certain situations by only allowing them to “bond with me” if they adhered to a certain rule (stay with me and don’t go hunting on their own).
Now I experience how nice it is for me and my dogs when I point out these rules, which still exist and are necessary, IN CONNECTION with them and make their observance so pleasant and nice for them that they naturally want to keep them! The difference lies in the “unconditional connection”, a connection from me (to myself and) to the dogs, which cannot be cancelled by anything. And especially when something unexpected or unknown to all of us happens, maybe even threatening, it is an immeasurable treasure to know about such a bond and to be able to live it!
Many experiences and insights of my path so far fit into TT, confirm what is there and enrich it. But to live the inner attitude of “being peaceful” so consistently and to REALLY ALWAYS adopt it as a teacher of my dogs is a huge gift for me! The videos help me a lot to see again and again with different animals this constant peaceful attitude of humans! Because I can put myself in these situations very well and experience them, I FEEL this peacefulness and can thus transfer it well to situations in my real life!
I am full of joy to have found TT and to have been given this great value for my life!
I would like to mention that I find the structure of the course, as well as the tutorials and the always very friendly, supportive way of teaching really great! Also the support I get in the group with my questions and thoughts is wonderful for me!
To you, Shelly and James, I am filled with gratitude — and yes: I am honoured to be a part of your community!

This technique is SO inspiring! While I am working thru the program slowly, I can see each time I watch a video, how beneficial this method can be for so many animals. I am very grateful to be a part of this program!


An outwardly simple process that truly becomes an art. When I started this Video Course I was excited by the feeling inside but had no idea the impact it would have on my Being. It has taken me back to so many parts of myself that may have been buried and fired me with a renewed sense of purpose in my life. To find such a shared space with animals of all species feed a dream for me. It is brilliant in its simplicity and complexity and seems to bring out the best part of people and animals. Thank you James and Shelley for creating this profoundly well developed platform for others to step on to. I can only imagine the effort it has taken to make these offerings digestible for such a broad audience. I consider it a privilege to have been able to share this with so many amazing students/participants of the Trust Technique. What a team you have created around you also. I cant recommend this practice highly enough. It should be taught in the mainstream as a part of Reconnection Ecology!!!

Karin Aberg

I am so grateful for this course. Watching these videos isn’t only helpful for the animals, but it has also given me a personal deep healing. I wish everybody could learn this at school, that would bring about a much more peaceful and better world.
Thank you!
