James is the pioneer of the Trust Technique method that connects and heals both animals and people. This new method has a deep message of hope and understanding which gives people a simple way to help both animals and humans with this authentic gift. The Trust Technique is a synergy of both healing and communication principles, delivered in a simple to use format for anyone to use effectively with any type of animal. It helps animals and people resolve problems by finding confidence and trust, whilst tapping into a delightful world where true animal intelligence can be seen, felt and interacted with. James works together with Shelley Slingo, who is Sanctuary Manager and Horse Assisted Healer. Shelley has a huge and unique capacity to organise and coordinate events while keeping a personal touch with all she meets. Her true passion is as a therapist, helping children and their families to find healing and understanding with the Trust Technique. Her purpose extends beyond the one-on-one therapy and into the expansion of this much needed work into larger communities.
When it comes to helping both animals and people the Trust Technique has a unique and new perspective to resolving negative situations. There is no such thing as a bad animal, just an opportunity for healing! Our method highlights the bigger picture of the shared relationship, making the process beneficial to the animal and also the people in their life. There is always a reason behind a behaviour problem. Building trust in this manner turns problems into an opportunity for development and learning. This evolution of relationship and change of consciousness opens up possibilities that could have never been previously perceived.
