Myra Hessett

HTLA Tutor

MyraMyra's involvement with Columba 1400 goes back to 2005 when she participated in a 'Young Ambassadors' Programme', describing it as the best CPD ever. This helped shape her approaches during her 10 years as a DHT in East Ayrshire. Myra studied Counselling Skills and CBT before taking up a post a CAMHS Project Officer in North Ayrshire.  This entailed promoting positive mental health and emotional wellbeing in young people and the staff supporting them. She retired from this post in 2018 to focus on her work as a facilitator with Columba 1400. In her spare time, Myra volunteers with Victim Support Scotland, tries to hold a tune in her church choir, enjoys reading, travelling and spending time with family and friends.
