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 have never come across anything as profound or inspiring as this. Seeing The Trust Technique in action leaves me in no doubt that I need to become a practitioner so that I can help animals and their people live more peaceful lives. My relationship with my own dog has developed to level I didn’t think possible and I just want to share this amazing, beautiful , gentle method with everyone!


The Trust Technique has improved and strengthened my relationship with my very reactive dog . I finally realized that my emotional chaos at the time that I got Edgrr was funnelling straight into Edgrr’s sensitive little 4-week-old brain, and that began an ever-increasing battle, he reacts to my emotional mess, then I react to his reaction, well you know the story. After 3 trainers, the last one using e-collar and check chains to control my out-of-control 6-month-old, the e-collar, I’m ashamed and mortified to say, was the only thing that would snap Edgrr out of his fugue state of excitement so he could finally learn. At one year, Edgrr tore his crucial ligament, and healing began, no surgery, using Conservative Management to control his movement. I can definitely attest to the difficulty in keeping a year old dog calm, no running, no physical high movement at all. Finally found TT and it has been invaluable, calming Edgrr into a deep healing sleep was very dramatic in his recuperation. We still have tons of work to do, but this beautiful form of communication has been pivotal in getting my boy to use his ramp to get in my jeep, calming him before friends come over, and most of all, the deep healing sleeplike trance he goes onto using the Trust Technique. I can see immediately when he wakes up, that his limp is practically non existent and we are starting on our first outdoor walks in 10 months. I am so enthusiastic about the Trust Technique, my friends are sick of me raving about Edgrr’s and my little victories. I am even getting his nails trimmed without fuss, only one ot two at a time but I’m confident that next year at this time he will just hand his paw over for nail trimming. Most importantly, I will never use the ecollar on Edgrr again!
I am definitely pursuing my passion for TT and will be taking the practitioners course as well. Bless James and Shelley for all you do to help animals and humans across the world and for sharing your knowledge, and teaching us about this amazing and simple technique to improve and enrich all our relationships with our beloved animals, and people too. Thank you.

I have loved every second of this video course! And love that this is an super easy way to rapidly and consistently improve the lives of my many rescue animals here at home.

It’s been a little over a week now that I’ve been using the trust technique and already my 2 dogs, who were previously at war inside the house, stopped being at each other’s throat constantly. During the sessions, they have even started to share the bed they sleep on. Of course, when there is food involved, I still need to be careful, but even that has decreased. I’m currently working on establishing the invisible lead inside the house. Pretty soon I’ll be able to start the invisible lead outside as well, which will hopefully help resolve my youngest dog’s issues with his territorial behaviour towards them.

In the cats, the trust technique has less of an obvious effect. I apparently am not that good at reading cat behaviour… I always thought they didn’t like each other, as they constantly hiss and fight each other. From the very first moment I started using the trust technique (just before bedtime, while laying in the bed), instead of having just 1 of them join me on the bed, I all of a sudden found myself surrounded my 4 out of 6 cats, all purring and snoozing together! Unfortunately, the 2 that need it the most, are the ones that seem to be reluctant to join in. I suppose it’s a little too intense for them. But I’m sure, as long as I keep up regular sessions up, keeping their needs in mind, they too will join in shortly!

Thank you for sharing this lifesaving method!!
