In addition to working with a handful of coaching clients, and clinical trials. Des runs professional development workshops/training for GPs, business leaders, trainers, coaches and consultants.

In 2012/13, The Shinnick Depression treatment was in Registered Medical Clinical Trial with the University of Auckland School of Medicine.

The trials were scaled back to part-time in the clinic when Des Shinnick – a key founder was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident, resulting in concussion and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).

Des shifted his focus to a new paradigm, when he discovered the mainstream treatment for TBI was not yielding fast enough results for him and set about treating his own TBI. He’s now developed a TBI Treatment Protocol that will now become another model of rapid treatment compared to existing options. 

Des lives in Auckland, NZ. When he’s not working, he loves walking, property and motorbikes. For more details about Des’ professional development services for individuals, companies/organisations, as well as full contact details please click on the below links.
