Figen Murray, OBE

Speaker and Counterterrorism Advocate

Figen Murray mother of Martyn Hett, who was one of 22 people who died in the 2017 Manchester Arena attack is the leading advocate for the “Protect Duty” legislation in the United Kingdom that would require the use of antiterrorism security measures at all venues with a capacity of more than 100 persons. Now known as Martyn’s law, this legislation is currently under consideration by the U.K government.

For over 23 years, Murray worked as a counselor and life coach and offered clinical supervision to other counselors too. She has always had a passion for listening to other people’s troubles helping them get back on track to lead happier, healthier lives is a role she finds both challenging and rewarding.

Following the decision to no longer continue her work as a counselor, Murray is now committed to promoting peace, kindness and tolerance in Hett’s memory, while also working towards tangible changes that can help ensure no other family has to go through what hers did.
