She completed her clinical psychology training qualification in 2012 and obtained a PhD in the field of Childhood ADHD and Sleep from National University of Ireland, Maynooth, Republic of Ireland.


Upasana has experience working with children and adolescents presenting complex mental health needs in a range of different social and cultural backgrounds (having worked in both public and private sectors in New Delhi, Singapore, Belfast, Dublin, and now in the UK with the Oxford CBT and Southern Health NHS). She has a strong grasp of clinical assessment, formulation, and especially differentiating trauma-based psychopathology from neurodevelopmental cognitive processing styles and general psychopathology including anxiety, mood disorders and emerging personality disorders.

Upasana is trained as a clinical examiner for ADOS and a range of cognitive, attainment and neuropsychological evaluation tools such as WISC-V, WAIS-IV, WAIT-III, Phonological Test of Attention, NEPSY, and the Test of Everyday Attention, in addition to using specialist clinical inventories, questionnaires and projective tests such as Rorschach Inkblots (Exner scoring system). Having served as the clinical examiner for Pearson for their country specific standardization of a Wechsler tool, as well as developing a protocol for a sleep questionnaire in ADHD population, Upasana’s interest lies in the use and development of psychometric tools.
