James is the pioneer of the Trust Technique that connects and heals both animals and people. He has always had a connection to animals from a very early age where he expressed interest in working with horses. In 1999 James found the missing link when he started working with Reiki and in 2000 he started to use detailed animal communication with horses he was already working with using Reiki. In 2004 James was fortunate enough to study his Reiki Mastership with the lineage bearer of Reiki Phyllis Lei Furumoto and was initiated in Hawaii in the old residence of Hawayo Takata. Moving forward to 2007, and after teaching many animal communication courses and Reiki classes James, along with his partner Shelley founded the Trust Technique -Created from the understanding of healing and communication, its roots were an amalgamation of all the disciplines that James had learned. Since then James has taught many Trust Technique clinics, helped to set up Mane Chance Sanctuary in Compton England, and developed a Practitioner Program.
