Tutorials & Case Studies

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 have found this course immensely valuable, not only in helping me to better understand my own little dog but also in giving me a deeper understanding of all the animal beings we share this world with. Extremely heartwarming, thank you so much for doing this amazing work that you do.

I find the video courses set up very well. This allows me to learn at my own pace and look at difficult sections again or again.
I am totally enthusiastic about the technique. I had heard about it for a long time. But it was only with the translation that the video courses became valuable to me.
Some translations are still missing for the dogs. I would be very happy if this is still done. It’s easier for me to filter out the subtleties in my native language.

Ich finde die Videokurse sehr gelungen. Damit kann ich in meinem Tempo lernen und mir schwierige Abschnitte nochmal oder immer wieder ansehen.
Ich bin total begeistert von der Technik. Ich hatte schon länger davon gehört. Aber erst mit der Übersetzung sind die Videokurse für mich wertvoll geworden.
Bei den Hunden fehlen noch einige Übersetzungen. Ich würde mich sehr freuen, wenn das noch gemacht wird. Es ist für mich leichter in meiner Muttersprache, die Feinheiten zu filtern.


I have found this course to be a revelation. I am using the technique on both my rescue dogs and to be able to use the present moment to just gauge where their issues lie was very eye opening. The different energy of each dog enabled me to then really focus down on each of their needs.
I find the technique to be simple but incredibly effective and I think this is a great approach. The little lightbulb moments of learning I had throughout the course were very interesting and helpful.
I would completely recommend this technique and course to anyone who wants to help and live with their animals in harmony.
The videos were comprehensive and enabled me to see how the technique can be used in all of the different areas that animals need help in.
I loved it and I’m sure I’ll keep coming back to the course again and again when I need to clarify or refresh my learning.


Dear James and Shelley,

Thank you so much for this course…I completed it today and really enjoyed every video on it!!
To see the love and dedication of the 2 of you…. touched my heart so much.
The love for the animals which I saw in all the videos and with the rescue centres is something I will not forget.
I am also into animal foundations and therefore have had many trauma dogs from Spain and even without the TT course I saw them grow every day, month and year….but now with this course it helps my animals even more and faster in the future.
I just THANK YOU both for that!
The last 4 years I have 5 adopted horses….they come to my life suddenly ( or not) and now I feel even more how connected I am and will be in the future with those beautiful and amazing horses!!

And James the times I hear you say….sit LOVE and WELL DONE….hahaha
It is so with love for the animals and even here in my house we do it now and think about you :)!
Although we are dutch the animals do understand english or eh….our voices and what the intention is :)!

Thank you for this amazing course….I will be back and think about animal communication course first and who knows what the future holds!

My dog thank you as well :)))!
I wish you both and your families all the best!!
Take care and greeting from the Netherlands!

The trust technique is the missing piece in my life, both on a personal and a career level.
Having started with the messages of trust( MOT), I was truly blown away by the contents within the video course and would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who wants the best relationship with their own animals, whether large or small.
The course is well set out into easily managed sections and I would frequently revisit the corresponding tutorial after watching specific consultations to consolidate what I had just watched and remind myself of areas I may have missed during the first time of watching.
Reading through other comments, there are suggestions for an in between video course as the gap between MOT and TT video course (both in content and financially ) is huge. ( not including the animal communication course).
Another way could be that as new consultations are added, some of the older ones could be archived into a separate section at the end, available to all who pay for the course but only needing to be completed as a prerequisite by those going on to the practitioner level. This keeps the video course manageable for those wanting to concentrate on their own animals, whilst reducing time/cost/management of another course. There are also some subtle changes in your practices from the first consultations, which though useful in a historical context may not be as valuable for day to day video course member usage working with their own pets.
I would also champion the use of the forums for questions and queries and make use of the practitioners giving their time at the end of the video course to further your own knowledge, understanding or for help if you come unstuck on a technical issue.
The Take Note pop up I used initially but found it didn’t always work well for me on all screen orientations or equipment I used, that said I am a confirmed pencil and paper girl as that works best for my head.

Thank you James, Shelley and team for putting your time, energy and life into this worthwhile course and personally I am looking forward to progressing to the next level- training as a practitioner and all the benefits it will bring to me personally, my animals, my family and my future clients.
