Edit -> Transform -> Flip Vertical

Drag the image downward. It should look like this.


5) Right click “Reflection copy” layer and select “Blending options” and than select “Gradient Overlay”.


6) Check “reverse” box. Click on gradient color bar. Select left color same as the color of the original¬† text. Select right color same as the color of background. Here text color is black and background color is white. Click OK


7) Hold mouse at bottom of inverted image and slowly move the mouse upward. Drag mouse until you get something like this.


You can also change opacity of the reflected image as per requirement.
