Kentucky Inventory of Mindfulness Skills (KIMS)

At the Hampshire Anxiety Clinic we include mindfulness practice into our range of therapies as it is such a powerful way for you to train your brain. With appropriate practice you can increase your ability to control your emotions, choosing a more appropriate response to situations, including breaking habits and learning how to deal with negative thinking, reducing stress and anxiety. There is a considerable amount of growing research of how mindfulness practice or brain training has many neurobiological benefits. For example, increasing emotional intelligence, empathy and self-regulation. Studies have shown that there is an increase in grey matter following mindfulness training (please refer to our posts on social media). The brain has an ability to repair and generate new neural connections, creating a deeper skill in communication with others and a stronger more positive sense of self, where life can feel more purposeful and resourceful. To help in determining the level of self-awareness in various categories, this questionnaire can help to inform and assess the 4 mindfulness skills of, observing, describing, action with awareness and accepting or allowing. To find out more about your mindfulness skills please complete the questionnaire with your first response, try not to think too long about the answer. After completion of this questionnaire, please feel free to contact Mike Ward of the Hampshire Anxiety Clinic to review your scores and to begin learning how to increase your mindfulness skills.

Please note the Kentucky Inventory of Mindfulness Skills (KIMS) questionnaire is housed on our London Anxiety Clinic website.
