This week’s Humans of Weston instalment comes from day-tripper Glynis Hooper.

Glynis, aged 51, lives in Highbridge but she told the Humans team she had made a spontaneous decision to visit Weston for the day.

She is a qualified therapist but said giving people advice was not necessarily the correct course of action to take in certain situations.

Glynis said: “I care for my daughter who is unwell.

“I have always been interested in the health side (of life) so I like to support people and do things which help them to look after themselves.

“To be honest, giving people advice may have the opposite effect so it is better off just to let them go with their gut feeling.”

Glynis also said she enjoyed taking part in physical activity on a regular basis.

She said: “I love coastal walking, cycling and a bit of sport.

“They are my passions.”
