What is the Trust Technique?

The Trust Technique ® is based on the premise that animals and humans share and react to micro feelings. When an animal or a person is over-thinking it creates strong emotional feelings. When this happens it can become more difficult to understand or connect with each other. This can have a negative impact on the relationship and ultimately may lower trust levels. Anxious over-thinking is one of the main causes for so called “behavioural problems” in both animals and people.

The Trust Technique® is a mindful practice that is shared between the person and their animals. In simple terms, there is a sharing of peace of mind – the opposite to over- thinking. In the first stages, this connection builds a core bond of trust and confidence in each other, which can then develop and extend to other areas of their lives. When the relationship shifts from fear to trust, over-reactions are replaced with instinctual learning.

Because this method is motivated from a peaceful authentic state of being, it promotes cooperation through kindness. The reward is a more truthful understanding of animal intelligence and allows for communication that manifests in shared wellbeing.

We are delighted to share this information with you and to help you discover something that is gently profound yet incredibly strong.

What is the 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 and even rescued lions. 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 at home anytime, no matter how busy your schedule!


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!

 This site is great! The videos are very informative and touching to watch, and the tutorials are easy to understand. This technique can definetely be learned through the site. I am using it on my dog, and it has helped me to understand her better, and to stop being dominant with her. It has also taught me how to meditate, and Im using it on myself as well when my mind gets too busy. It feels really good that my money goes to funding this work 🙂

What we do with funds created from the video course

We have always used the funds created from the video course to fund helping animals and organisation free of charge. Here are some of the projects we are currently doing.

Project Animal Rescue

We give our time to work with hard to help animals in centres and teach staff the Trust Technique

As you will see in the videos this service is very valuable for rescued animals. We have offered our services to rescued horses, dogs, cats, lions and bears and look forward to helping many more centres in this way.

Project The Dream (free trial)

Gives people free access to learning the Trust Technique with the platinum video course. premium members help us to pay for the video plays and promotion so that many people can have this opportunity to learn the technique. We believe that to share this information openly worldwide may over time make a difference to the animal-human relationship. We may not be able to change the world but to change individual relationships directly means everything to us.

Project Trust Technique Therapy

A unique therapy designed for all ages who have social, emotional or mental health needs. It involves working on a one to one basis with a specially trained Trust Technique Coach combined with rescued animals. Participants are taught mindfulness with an animal in a truly nurturing and healing environment using this pioneering method. The skills are used to support, direct and enhance the individuals ‘ lives.

In time this will develop to help many other people including terminally ill. The Trust Technique therapy has been specifically designed to help the animals and people find true healing together in a dynamic and unique way.

Currently, we are developing and accrediting this approach and look forward to the huge potential that it has to offer.

Fantastic and a very inspirational video course. Very different and great examples.I have already learnt a lot for myself from the content of the course and is it so lovely to see the reaction from my dog Mr. Nero; how he can learn in his own pace. What a delicate technique to create a deep bound between a human and an animal based on trust and peace. Genuinely excellent. James and Shelly are absolutly inspirational for me. Thank you so much for your great work around the whole world. I have just finished the Trust Technique Video Course and I am looking forward to start the Crossfields Institute Level 3 Diploma in Mindfulness for People with their Animals.

This video course is truly amazing. I am experiencing a lot of peace myself and my dog is asking for more a lot of the time. Bruno is 14 and getting fragile now. He is a fully trained guide dog and therefore very focused on me. He has cared for me when I have been poorly and now he needs me to focus on him. Thank you for sharing your skills and understanding with these student friendly sessions. I am not blind but pretty old now and this course is a joy for us both. Lots of people have noticed how connected we are and how Bruno asks for peace sessions and how refreshed we both are after we have been present. Thank you guys I am well into this course and will share with others as much as possible. Annie Larner

James and Shelley and The Trust Technique are people who are totally trustworthy; and the techniques they have developed and are teaching fill my soul with hope for animals and their future experiences with humans who have taken on board what the Trust Technique reveals and teaches. At last - animal-human interactions based on peace and respect. Thank you from this very grateful Australian.

Getting back one animal's trust into humans and into life is not easy. But James does it very quickly with the Trust technique. I wish I had more time to go forward with the course and practice with my cat .... and myself!I love The Trust Technique course: James's calmness and love for animals is inspiring. He is one example for all those who want to help once abused animals to get to the happy life they deserve.Thank you again, James and Shelley, for this course which I would recommend to anyone as a therapy for animals and also for humans. And thank you for what you are doing for animals.

Hi there,it´s a lot to say about the Trust Techique. And it´s all positive :-)))First of all, what I really love is that it is ever so gentle and kind for the animal as well as the human. As James phrases it: Where peace arrives the unpeace has to leave, so if the human is offering the present moment, he is becoming peacefull himself and that already does a lot of good....Secondary it´s that James deliver´s a feeling towards the animal. If he is proud of an animal you actually can feel the pride across a camera onto your Laptop, and see how much this does for the animal. This truly feeling a feeling instead of just talking about a feeling.Next is that he does differentiate between sympathy ( feeling sorry for ) as a no-no and empathy (feeling with), which for me is quite exceptional and totally necessary for healing.Offering the peace of mind in this mindfull regarding way makes it even gentler and opens the space for easy learning for the animal and again for the human as well.Last but not least the Trust Technique is so easy and effortessly to learn, that everyone is able to do so and.... change the world to the better :-))))
