Medical Referrals

We accept patient referrals from Medical Practitioners.

Client notes are provided as standard and include PHQ9, GAD7, Emotional Scaling or Kessler10 assessments. We’ll advise the before and after assessments and treatment provided.

If you have a specific format for notes please advise the Shinnick Method Practitioner you refer to. Our standard delivery system is email to the specified practice email address. If your Practice, PHO or DHB have a specific measurement standard please advise this and we’ll ensure the client is assessed in that way. We use the PHQ9 and Emotional Scaling as standard.

Once clients transition from being depressed or anxious to feeling good and being able to sleep better, we will communicate this through practice notes, and revised assessments. We advise the patient to contact the referring practice to schedule an appointment to review medications. We advise patients that any change in medication or coming off medication should be done with the advice of their Medical Doctor.

Clinical Trials

We are undertaking Clinical Trials Globally through 2018/19. We believe it’s important to research and document the success of these processes. We had been in Registered Clinical Trial previously with the University of Auckland, School of Medicine and included a medical team members from New Zealand, Australia, England, Canada and the United States.That trial was terminated when the founder (Des Shinnick) had been seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident and unable to continue.

With us taking this to the world again “Launch 2.0” we have a larger team to ensure that the situation that occurred previously does not occur again. We are deeply appreciative of the support we’ve had from the University of Auckland, School of Medicine, Medical Practitioners and Medical Practices.

We intend to continue to seek further Clinical Trials to research this methodology of drug free depression treatment and the full Stage 1 and Stage 2 Shinnick Depression Treatments, as well as our Rapid Anxiety Treatment and Dyslexia Treatment.

Here is a link to our 2018/19 Global Clinical Trials.

Rapid Depression Treatment - Stage 1
Treatment durations: 1.5-2 hours.

Session Summary:

  • Complete client information form
  • Complete depression assessments
  • Complete broader risk assessment
  • Complete the stage 1 Shinnick Method – Rapid Depression Treatment, primarily a coaching programme for how to get out of being depressed.
  • Schedule follow up.

Clients report feeling instantly better and in control of their emotions.

We’d expect the pre and post session Emotional Scaling to typically change from 3-8 and moving from No-Yes when considering if the patient feels in control of their emotions.

Typically we’d expect a two week follow up to show a PHQ9 of 4-8 and less than 10. Where the pre-session PHQ9 had been 18.

Rapid Depression Treatment - Stage 2
Treatment durations: 1-5 hours typically.

Treatment Methodology: Talking therapies and coaching processes focused on minimising or removing the subconscious and conscious triggers to the depression and or skills to function post depression. This includes approved processes from our Clinical Therapy, Counselling and Shinnick Depression Therapy.

Clients report having issues that have sat with them for years being lifted or removed.

Sleep Changes: Clients often report being able to sleep more easily. This is a direct result of the change from being depressed to feeling in control of their emotions and feeling good. We contribute to this by reviewing their sleep and coaching them through new strategies for sleeping.
