About Sally Riggall

I joined the University’s Hull campus in 2005 and moved to the Lincoln campus in 2013.  My professional background is in counselling and for many years I trained professional counsellors, managing and teaching on a range of counselling courses in the further education sector. I am an experienced counsellor and have previously worked in the public sector with doctors’ patients and local authority employees.

Department Responsibilities

I am the deputy course leader for the BSc (Hons) in Health and Social Care and enjoy assisting with the planning and running of the course.   I am also a member of the admissions team where I take part in marketing events and interviewing students for the programme. I believe strongly in widening participation and lead the CertHE in Health and Social Care, a one year course which supports students in their quest to access our BSc programme. My specialism is in teaching communication and counselling skills across a variety of programmes including Social Work courses and the BSc in Health and Social Care.  I also lead the Skills for Professional Development module. Another responsibility I hold is Senior Tutor with responsibility for the tutorial programme for BSc Health and Social Care students.  I am an experienced group tutor and believe strongly in helping students to develop their self-esteem, confidence and skills during their time in the University.
