Customer quote: I really wish more people knew about this method, I've never came across anything like what you do. Its not even training, it's made me think in a whole different manner and it's literally like learning of a new secret power.

Are you a dog/horse parent with an anxious or ​over-excited pet?

Do you feel frustrated with the challenge of trying to ​help them, or feel helpless in not being able to fully ​understand their anxiety?

  • Are you feeling worried or stressed at the thought of ​walking your dog because you constantly have to ​avoid other dogs/people?

  • Exhausted from your dog pulling on the lead all the ​time?

  • Are you seeing signs of stress when you have to leave ​your dog?

  • Is your horse spooking a lot, won’t settle in their ​stable, fidgety or reluctant to be caught?

  • Fidgety when being groomed, rugged or scared of ​spray bottles?

Would you like to be able to calm your animal in these ​scenarios?

Do you want to learn how you can assist your animal ​family member and ultimately help them through their ​anxieties so they no longer feel like this?

Would it be great to learn a technique that you can utilise ​in any situation and with your other pets?

If so, I can help!

As a Trust Technique Practitioner I can teach you how to ​enhance your relationship with your dog or horse, building ​trust and confidence within them.

You will develop better communication and be able to ​take them from anxious/stressed/over-excited to calm and ​peaceful.

My priorities as a practitioner are your animal’s needs and ​providing you with all the support you need to help them.

About The Trust Technique

The Trust Technique is a gentle method that works with all ​animals. It helps to build trust and confidence within the ​animal. Just as importantly, the trust and bond between ​animal and human becomes stronger, leading to a deeper ​connection between them.

By assisting an animal and their human to become peaceful in ​many situations, the relationship between them can be ​deepened, allowing easier and better communication.

Animals like to please us and will willingly do whatever is being ​asked of them, providing they are physically able to do so, ​aren't afraid and understand the request. In return, if we can ​more easily recognise their wants and needs, we can respond ​to these more readily, avoiding potential frustration, upset or ​disappointment arising on either side.

The Trust Technique can be used as a standalone approach as ​well as alongside therapy or animal teaching methods.

I have been using the Trust Technique since mid 2020 and ​prior to that have many years experience with a variety of ​animals.

It brings me great joy to see both animals and their humans ​experiencing the benefits of this method, such as peace of ​mind, enhanced shared experiences and so much more.

I'm committed to being the best I can be, to enable me to ​help as many animals and their humans as I can.

I continue to research, learn and train in as many ways as I ​am able to, with in-depth reading, taking part in webinars, ​courses and obtaining further qualifications in this field.

Please note that I adhere to the veterinary surgeons act so ​am unable to provide a diagnosis for medical issues.

However, if you would like me to, I am happy to discuss any ​medical issues with your vet and how the Trust Technique ​could complement the treatment or medication that your ​animal is receiving.

I do what I do because I love it and fully believe in the ​transformation I can help you achieve with your animal.

Client Comments

“I was looking for help to teach ​myself and my daughter to catch ​our horse who really didn't want ​to be caught and could at times ​charge at us.

We also had some issues with ​picking his feet up to clean them.

Lou taught us the Trust ​Technique and how to use it to ​overcome these issues.

He will now catch with ease and ​pick his feet up for us with no ​bother.

I cannot speak highly enough for ​the support and techniques she ​has taught us, that have ​completely changed his behaviour ​for the better.

I would highly recommend her ​services”.

Consultation Format

  • Assessment of your animal

  • Teaching you about the Trust Technique

  • Initial work with your animal

  • Teaching you how to do the Trust Technique

  • Guided use of the Technique with your animal

  • Creation of next steps plan

A consultation will start with a free of charge, no obligation, pre-​assessment conversation (usually by phone).

The 15min call allows us to discuss any issues you are ​experiencing with your animal, to run through a risk assessment ​and to work out the best time for a session, suitable for your ​animal as well as yourself.

This ensures any session will be safe for all parties involved and ​conducive for the Trust Technique.

The consultation itself will usually take around 90mins to 2 ​hours.

I will assess your animal in their own environment and we will ​discuss in more detail any issues you and your animal may be ​having.

I will explain the Trust Technique in relation to how it can help ​with these issues, followed by a demonstration with your ​animal.

The demonstration will allow me to assess your animal further ​and to start working with them, as well as showing you the Trust ​Technique in person.

The consultation will be tailored specifically to the animal and ​yourself. If your animal is nervous, the demonstration will be ​carried out at a suitable distance so that they feel safe.

An important part of the session is for me to teach you the Trust ​Technique and how to work with your animal at their pace.

Together, we will create a customised plan for the next steps, ​which will include how you can continue to practice with your ​animal.

The consultation sets the foundation and introduces you and ​your animal to what the Trust Technique is and allows you to ​start practicing with them.

At the end of the session, we will arrange a convenient time for a ​follow up call. At any time before or after this, should you have ​further questions or need guidance, I’m happy for you to ​contact me as I will be there to support you.

In most cases, follow up sessions are required where I guide you ​further to really progress with the focus on specific scenarios to ​help you achieve your goals so your animal can be calm and ​happy whatever the situation.

However, if you prefer, I can work with your animal during these ​sessions.
