My experience has taught me that a good coach can get others to believe in them and what they teach; yet a great coach can get others to believe in themselves and what they can achieve. Dr Fleming is that kind of a coach, one who can foster both action and ongoing change in others.
His knowledge of neuroscience and human behavior is surpassed only by his integrity and genuine consideration of others.
We thank him for one of the most successful campaigns we have provided to our colleagues. "

Praise for Dr. Fleming's Brain Optimizing Technology
I am enjoying the following changes in my state of mind as a result of Dr. Fleming's methodologies:
I find myself considering the multiple facets of a problem and the consequences of different responses rather than simply reacting.
While the desire to drink alcohol continues to arise from time to time, the intensity is muted. Likewise, the accompanying sense of frustration and anxiety which formerly haunted me has virtually dissipated. It is liberating to not scrape through each day with the brain-grit accompanying a low grade hangover. My productivity at work is steadily increasing as a I define and attack tasks from a more balanced perspective; I am knocking off tasks which I avoided in the past.
I view my life and each day with anticipation and purpose.

"I wanted to thank you again for helping me overcome my restless leg problem. I have tried everything imaginable and nothing worked until I tried Grey Matters. It has been about 6 months and I still do not have any problems with my feet or legs. I'm glad I researched the different Neuroscience options since they are not all created equal. I would highly recommend Grey Matters. Thanks again for letting me sleep at night. I feel great."

"Before meeting Dr. Fleming and utilizing his unique brain-based services, my pre treatment condition was not so good and I was running out of ideas. I had been working at night for more than 5 years. My sleeping schedule was irregular to say the least. My usual routine was falling asleep for 2 hours right away, waking up unable to fall back asleep, laying in bed all day too tired to do anything productive but not tired enough to fall back asleep, and then crashing just in time to hear the alarm clock wake me for another night. By the end of the week I was exhausted. I would sleep through Friday night and my weekend consisted of really just Saturday. Sunday I needed to try and sleep again in the afternoon so I could gear up for another week of the same.
On top of that I had been having issues for years thinking on my feet. I would describe it as my brain would get " stuck " as I would work though math problems or struggle to understand a new concept at work. I'd compare it to the way that a computer freezes sometimes as it boots up or a car stalls on a cold winter day. I had a concussion playing college football. I don't recall much about it other than that I couldn't read for a whole week after the event. I was never certain if my brain issues were a result of the hits, the lack of sleep, or a combination of the two. I AM certain that the treatment has changed my situation.
The first day that I did his procedure my mind was more focused and I slept better than I had in years. The sticky feeling was gone by the end of 1 week of treatment. I had more energy at work and more time for social activities because I was sleeping again. Other people noticed. My stamina also increased. No more collapsing 3/4 of the way through the day. Coworkers could count on me to remember things that we discussed at the end of my shift and my girlfriend could count on me to remember to bring the milk home from the grocery store. The best part about it is that the fog hasn't returned. I'm still sleeping better than ever and my thoughts are flowing freely. Thank you!!!"

"Dr. Fleming's brain-based coaching techniques and strategy literally turned my life and career around. The brain technology he uses set the stage for shifting around an emotionally reactive consciousness I was completely unaware of prior to engaging him. Sure, I read all the Harvard Business Review articles on great leadership behaviors and work/life balance ideas, but until your brain "gets the memo" these ideas don't take root. I was on the path to a huge burnout, with financial and emotional consequences looming big time when I called in Dr. Fleming in to spend some time with me in NYC. His insight and kindness was a great combination on top of this powerful brain technology and since then I have experienced amazing growth and tangible outcomes. Increased financial gain, improved sleep, decreased anxiety, and "smarter not harder" productivity decisions. One of the best strategists on changing behavior out there on the market---bar none."

"Dr. Fleming's coaching and brain technology did wonders for me upon my return from my tour of duty in Iraq during the Middle East war. Before I received my treatment from him, I was always quick with my temper. When I was in public I always kept my head on a swivel, with my head working overtime---as in, overworked, overstressed, over thinking nonstop. Since working with him, my head is clear, I can sleep through the night, and finally I have not had any more nighmares, affiliated with trauma re-experiencing. This is a HUGE relief! You see, before meeting him, my head was constantly in a fog and as a result I was making some very poor decisions that forever changed my life. I would beat myself up..... and now, I am thinking clearly, i am happier, and I feel secure. Things are looking better for me, through my eyes, for my life"

"Had a problem with OCD. Kevin was instrumental in helping me where others weren't. He has brought the science of the mind into new frontiers."
"I would sincerely like to thank Dr. Kevin Fleming for the unique take on behavioral based coaching. Dr. Fleming exuded warmth and sincerity enabling me to work through my thoughts, in a safe and comfortable environment. Dr. Fleming's use of brain wave technology changed my reactions to prior negative experiences allowing me to to forward in a positive light. Recommended to anyone growing in a alcoholic family."

"You know Kevin, its a strange feeling, its like I'm in the eye of a storm. Things are swirling around me but in the center, where my real self is, calm and quiet. I can see and feel the out side stress but it stays outside. I am more calm than I have been in at least 30 years. I contribute this to the brain work you did on me...."
"Before meeting Dr. Fleming I was always an anxious kid. For years I spent so much time and money on therapists and drugs that only ended up making life more confusing leaving me feeling completely lost through most of my adolescence and young adulthood. After trusting Dr. Fleming's brain wave technology within a couple weeks I was sleeping better, have had better relationships with my family and friends, and feel overall more level headed. I was a little apprehensive about trying the technology, but I feel it has leveled me out in a way that I finally have a rational sense of my thoughts and emotions. It's amazing how negative thoughts and emotions were ruling and overpowering my day-to-day life. Although life will never be one hundred percent stress free, I feel that I now have the power and control over my choices and my own well being. Through Dr. Fleming's one on one sessions I've learned so much about my mind and how to maintain balance."
"My experience with Dr. Kevin Fleming exceeded all of my expectations. I went into this process hoping to recover from some re-occurring obsessive behavior in my life and serious loss in confidence and self esteem. After 4 days of work with Dr. Fleming I left beautiful Jackson Hole Wyoming with a clear and focused mind. I was completely relieved of my anxieties. It's been 2 months since my engagement w/him and I have completely regained happiness and confidence and power in my life. This was an incredible experience and I would recommend this to anyone feeling trapped in there own mind."

"I have been afflicted with anxiety for many years and struggled daily with worry and panic until I met Dr. Fleming. I am a 53 year old entrepreneur and have started and managed multiple businesses from manufacturing and building to security and surveillance. Everything in my life was fine until about 2005 when anxiety, panic and worry set in. I believe the tremendous amount of stress I incurred from business, raising family, extreme hours and dealing with problems, and issues over many years attributed to this illness.
I lived with this problem for several years not knowing what was going on with me, it was Christmas 2008 when I felt like I was having a heart attack that I rushed myself to the hospital only to find out there was absolutely nothing wrong with my heart or anything else for that matter. This happened to me several times through out the next couple of years. I consulted my long time physician and he told me that I had acute anxiety and put me on Xanax. This did seem to ease the anxious moments for a while but really played havoc with my memory.
I then began looking for a more holistic approach to cure myself of this dreaded problem as it was affecting everything I did including family, work and relationships. I started reading, watching and listening to everything I could find related to anxiety, worry, panic, etc. some of the material helped me understand what was going on but it was tough for me to completely help myself. I then realized that I needed to seek professional help. I researched, called and questioned several Dr's, therapist and mental health professionals and did not like any of the methods I saw. In my research I came across Dr. Kevin Fleming, I gave him a call and we spoke about my issues for a while, I was convinced that he knew what he was doing and decided to retain his services.
Dr. Fleming started out with a very professional approach to understanding exactly what I was going through. We first met face to face over lunch and he let me explain my situation thoroughly. He then set forth a plan of action for me to follow which I did on a daily basis. We would communicate back and forth daily via e-mail, text and phone and then meet to move to the next level. I am very impressed with Doc's professionalism, knowledge and understanding of the mind and neuro system. Through the use of text, tests and written/oral material he was able to analyze my issues and allow me to specifically focus on changing my thought processes which changed my life.
This was a 90 day Journey that has allowed me to live again. The final stage was the use his innovative quantum-based neurotechnology which is a process of re-aligning the neural networks back to the original state that they need to be working in. This too was amazing.
I want to Thank Dr. Fleming for helping me through a very troublesome time in my life. I continue to this day using the techniques that he has taught and consulted me on.

"I am a single, well-educated mother of two children one of whom has a learning disability. Unfortunately, my little family of three has had to deal with difficulties related to a painful, sudden divorce, issues with their father who may have a personality disorder as well as childhood depression and other challenges of life. Also, recently, my father whom I was very close to passed away and a two-year intimate relationship ended suddenly and extremely painfully. As I felt that all too familiar feeling of sinking back into the disabling depression that I had battled back from several years ago, I fortunately came across Dr. Kevin Fleming’s website.
I wrote to Kevin using the form on his Website initially about my concerns about my son and within a day or so, he called me directly. We spoke for over an hour about all three of us, what we had gone through and during that conversation I felt that someone finally understood the situation I was in and my overarching goal to help all three of us become more resilient to deal with the twists and turns of life. My goal for myself was to not allow this blindsiding last blow of the long-term relationship suddenly ending to send me back into disabling, depressive episodes I had previously experienced when my husband also left me with no warning six years prior. Kevin and I spoke about PTSD and I related to him how I felt I was re-experiencing the trauma of the last six years with the most recent, unexpected emotional events. I did not want to go back there and I wanted to be better emotionally for my little family. I also wanted to help my children become more emotionally resilient to deal with the difficulties they face at times in school and at home with their Dad.
After speaking with Kevin, I read everything I could get my hands on about brain optimization technology. Holding a Ph.D., myself, I understood that this was state-of-the-art technology with research still emerging but I held the testimonials in very high regard. I read how Kevin’s approach made a difference for war veterans who recovered from persistent nightmares, a CEO who suffered most of his life from ADHD and social difficulties now living in a healthier way and others now free from dealing with depression, anger and rage. I decided to pull the trigger for myself first trying Dr. Fleming’s techniques personally before exposing my children to them. Kevin answered all my questions, eased all my anxiety and I flew to Tulsa, Oklahoma for a week.
When I arrived in Tulsa, I was in an amazing amount of emotional pain based on the ending of the most significant relationship in my life feeling as if life would never get better and would always feel like I was “moving through molasses.” I felt that my family, my work and my life were back in an acute phase of suffering once again but this time, I was determined to do something about it. I was nervous but went into the experience with an open mind. Dr. Fleming first mapped by brain explaining to me the first day that my right hemisphere that handles emotional reactivity was operating 400% more than my left. Kevin stated that like the war veterans he dealt with, my brain was continually operating like it was “under siege” awaiting the next emotional attack or for “the next rug to be pulled out from under me.” He described my state of mind and experience exactly for the last six years as I had dealt with multiple legal and emotional events out of my control and confirmed what I could not describe to anyone that my brain perceived these events as emotional trauma. Like the war vets, I was re-experiencing post traumatic stress and my brain was relying on the former stress related pathways I think established six years prior. Kevin very clearly explained that through his technology we were going to try to re-direct the electrical system of my brain to rebalance it as well as create new pathways.
That week went fast with two relaxing, non-invasive sessions each day. I began to feel effects as soon as the second day. I felt lighter, more positive, and very relaxed. At the end of the week, Kevin and I parted friends and I went home to move forward in my life but not before confirming two spots for my children later in the summer. A month later, the three of us spent our summer vacation in beautiful Wyoming each of them having two sessions for five days each. At the conclusion of the sessions, my child with learning disabilities and other significant challenges, said he felt like, “…the static in his brain was reduced and there was now less continual static going on.” My other child without these challenges but some sadness said she felt “…much happier and having more energy.” Over the last two months, I have noticed differences in their attitudes, affect, responsibility and maturity that I had not seen prior to time spent with Dr. Fleming. My son, remarkably, now remembers to take his own medication, focuses better on tasks and my daughter seems more at peace with life and less emotionally vulnerable.
I will sincerely state that I think Dr. Kevin has helped me achieve what seemed like a totally elusive goal at the time. I feel I am more emotionally balanced, resilient and able to be the type of mother I want to be – one that is not letting life and events out of my control completely emotionally devastate me anymore. I am more focused, more productive and am able to accomplish the demands in my life with an even temperament more than ever before. I no longer feel like an emotional victim but in more in control of our lives and futures. I am eager to see the full effects of this treatment for my children during this upcoming school year but I can definitively say that two months out we are all less emotionally volatile, more thoughtful, more productive and truly are enjoying each other more.
I have not studied neuroscience but I would state that this brain optimization experience was incredibly powerful, uninvasive and totally different than traditional talk therapy or the psychopharmacological solutions that are so often prescribed in situations like ours. The results for me evidence a much more subtle perceptive effect than medication but somehow one that seems overall more effective and enduring. And the results I wanted for us happened after spending only one week with Dr. Fleming which I find truly amazing. My children and I are more resilient and seem to be able to allocate attention and emotions in an improved way. This is not something that can always be shown in a statistically significant study but I can fully attest to the power of this technology as a positive catalyst in my own life. My thinking, my work, my emotional reactions and most importantly, living my life has a clarity and a feeling of balance and presence that did not exist prior to treatment with Dr. Fleming and for that, I am truly thankful.
My little family, that has seem to have continually been on an emotional rollercoaster over the last few years with painful experiences of which we had no control over, is now functioning as a strong unit of three that seems to be able to better deal with the what the world might deliver. We are happier, more centered, with less mental and emotional static in our lives. I am now a calmer, better mother who can now model the things I want to for my children – resilience, emotional strength and true balance. I cannot recommend Dr. Kevin Fleming’s services any higher than to say that I am now eager to see what the future holds for all three of us. I truly believe that after Dr. Fleming’s treatment, all three of us can rise to great heights, deal with whatever life brings and that the future for myself and two children is very, very bright.

Finally, as I neared my 40th birthday milestone, I decided that I would make a personal commitment to creating more balance and more prosperity. I researched executive coaches extensively and settled on Dr. Fleming for two key reasons:
He wasn't interested in that "touchy-feely" approach that so often goes nowhere He immediately understood my situation and made clear, tangible recommendations about how to proceed.. He has an excellent approach to conducting business. We agreed that I would begin with a 360-degree assessment.
Dr. Fleming initiated the formal 360 Evaluation; facilitated the survey analysis and reports; and, conducted a thorough feedback session with me. Having had some experience with other profile-building tools as well as the Myers-Briggs tests, I thought I knew what to expect. I was wrong. The reports and accompanying information were, quite frankly, superior to anything that I'd ever imagined. Reviewing the extensive materials was like seeing an x-ray of my life. I was able to quickly and clearly see how I was essentially coping with life - not setting myself up to thrive.
As I begin the next chapter of my professional relationship - and my life, I am focused and invigorated. The reports and Dr. Fleming's guidance has allowed me to be aware of my faulty perspectives and embrace healthier, more productive ones. For the first time in four decades I have a clear sense of what I need to work on - and get this - it's fun.
