Nope.

Choice helmet reduces damage by your opponents Pokémon gx by 30. Since shrine isn’t a Pokémon gx, it won’t reduce damage

More over, Shrine of Punishment places damage counters, as opposed to actually doing damage.

 

Doing damage results in damage counters being placed on a card, but effects that place damage counters don't actually do damage.  It might sound confusing, but it helps if you think of it as steps in a process, with placing damage counters directly skipping the first step that (doing damage).

 

So, again, the entire reason I bring this up is that:

 

  • Choice Helmet reduces the damage taken from attacks by your opponent's Pokémon-GX.
  • Shrine of Punishment is a Stadium with an effect that places damage counters between turns on Pokémon-GX.
