In 2022 my husband started to suspect he had ADHD and wanted to have this confirmed as the symptoms were affecting his ability to function in daily life. After struggling to get an ADHD assessment on the NHS, we decided to arrange this privately and we’re very grateful to have found the ADHD Centre.

The booking process is painless and can be done online – no need to call in, which can be stressful if you have ADHD and don’t have anyone to support you in this process. You can read up about the team of psychiatrists available and choose one that you feel would be a good match. Appointments are via zoom and there is a range of times you can book, including early mornings, evenings and weekends, which is very flexible.

Our experience with Dr Upadhya was fantastic. We knew what documentation to fill out beforehand and the session itself was run in a very calm way. I was able to join my husband for support and Dr Upadhya was incredibly patient with him, listened and explained every step of the process. As we thought, my husband had very high ADHD symptoms (combination type) and Dr Upadhya explained what medical tests/checks we needed to do in order to confirm he was able to get onto medication.

Once we had the results of the tests, we were given an appointment within a few days to start the titration process. The medication he was prescribed has had a marked improvement and he has now settled on the dose that works for him. From diagnosis to completing the titration has taken 3 months, which were as painless as possible in this situation. We are now in the process of arranging a Shared Care Agreement with the GP, which the ADHD Centre initiates. Of course it is not all about medication and Dr Upadhya has given us guidance on other methods of managing my husband’s condition, such as a good routine, sleeping pattern and therapy, which we are looking into now.

We are very happy with the service we received at the ADHD Centre. Everyone is very kind and supportive, they respond to emails promptly and all of this made our experience incredibly positive. While going private is not the cheapest route, for us it was worth every penny to get my husband feeling more stable and happy. We would highly recommend the ADHD Centre for anyone who is looking for help with a diagnosis or treatment – you will certainly be in safe hands here.

My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD several years ago. I first suspected I also had ADHD when completing the initial questionnaire and identifying so strongly with the answers and started to question my view of normality (“Does it seem as though your child is driven by a motor?” I thought this was normal!).

It took several years for me to get to the point where I felt able to seek diagnosis and I am so grateful to have found the ADHD Centre. They have been wonderful from the beginning. The admin team are well organised, kind and very responsive. They also understand the challenges of ADHD and provide gentle reminders and the flexibility I need with the challenges I have with organisation.

I have been under the care of wonderful Dr Upadhyay for just under a year. She made me feel comfortable and accepted from the start, not something I am accustomed to. As well as sharing her vast knowledge and experience of ADHD she also gently led me to understanding and acceptance of my diagnosis. Most importantly for me, Dr Upadhyay shared with me her joy in treating patients with ADHD that clearly underlies her patient, kind, warm and expert care. I am also an NHS clinician and know you can’t fake this.

She guided me through treatment choices and with balanced and detailed information and was particular in ensuring the best possible results for me. I have now been on medication for 6 months and it has been transformative. Less chaos, less anxiety and finally moving past that place of thinking what could I achieve if only I could stay on track/focus. I cannot overestimate the difference this has made to my life and I have Dr Upadhyay to thank for that. I know this is the reason she does what she does, for the difference it makes in the lives of people like me and that is what drives the very best healthcare professionals.

If you are thinking about seeking a diagnosis, put yourself in the very safe hands of this wonderful team. Thank you Dr Upadhyay and the team, I will be forever grateful to you for the turning point in my life.

I have had a great experience with the ADHD centre. I was treated by Dr Upadhya who I highly recommend. She who was very patient and thorough during the diagnosis and treatment process. I have since had several follow up sessions with her and she has always shown a keen interest in my well being. The ADHD clinic staff have also been great, they were also quick to respond to any emails I had.

Private does cost, but I think it is more than worth it, I have a friend who have gone via NHS and unfortunately it takes a long time to get treatment even after diagnosis. I was fairly certain I have had ADHD my whole life but was always nervous about starting the process. The ADHD centre helps make this process easy for you.

Since starting treatment, I have noticed a big change in my life in terms of productivity and focus and wish I had gone for treatment earlier in my life instead of leaving it so late. I highly recommend the ADHD centre to anyone who is considering going for treatment

Dr Upadhyay diagnosed me with combined type ADHD, and treated me over numerous months, monitoring my medication and symptoms. Her manner was extremely kind, she normalised a lot of my symptoms that have always been a large problem and made me feel different. Dr Upadhyay was excellent at explaining the reason for a lot of my symptoms, whilst also listening to any worries or queries I had about ADHD/ medication. When discussing my ADHD and the ways it has impacted my life, Dr Upadhyay genuinely cared, and it was clear that patient welfare was of great importance to her. I cannot thank her enough for everything she has done.

Really friendly and knowledgeable. She was very reassuring and made you feel at ease and able to ask questions. Also very understanding of how talkative we can be on the intial assessment (we ran over). Very aware of comorbidities , such as anxiety. Took a detailed history and tailored the treatment plan as needed. Always kept informed and very happy with the whole process.

I’ve had a great experience with The ADHD Centre and with Dr Upadhyay. My concerns were listened to with genuine care and after some investigation I was diagnosed with ADHD (having been turned down for a referral previously through the NHS). Dr Upadhyay liased with a cardiologist when I needed additional tests and has been a great help throughout. It has been especially useful to be able to book appointments in the evenings that work around my work schedule. I would very much recommend The ADHD centre to others.
