Temple Vie Team


Dr Sam Robson

Temple Vie Medical Director and Founder

I have worked as a GP since 1997 and began to specialise in aesthetics in 2004. I launched the Temple Vie programme at Temple Clinic in February 2019 after becoming acutely aware of the amount of ‘diet programmes’ on the market that do not offer on-going support after a person has reached their target weight.

I wanted to create a programme that not only helped people quickly and safely lose weight but also ensure that they are properly equipped with the resources and skills to help them keep the weight off for life.

One of the hardest things for anyone who is not naturally slim is to know how to manage day to day eating once they come off the diet. This includes how to cope with temptation and how to relax and enjoy themselves at social events. It is also important to debunk the myths about food and eating ‘miracle cures’ that we are constantly fed by the media.

I feel passionately about this because it really should not have to be rocket science! I believe, with the right amount of support and encouragement anybody can tackle their weight, and this is our promise at Temple Vie.


John Eagles

Counsellor and Non-Executive Director

I’m John, Non-Executive Director and Counsellor at Temple. I've worked as a psychiatrist in Aberdeen, being a consultant at Royal Cornhill Hospital and an Honorary Professor of Mental Health with Aberdeen University. I had both a clinical and a research interest in people with eating problems.

I have since retired, and have helped Sam to develop and write the Temple Vie programme. It has been a pleasure to be involved in a programme that is multi-facetted, looking at all the elements involved in successful weight loss and at then keeping off that lost weight.

Inevitably, as an ex-psychiatrist, one of my main areas of interest is in the psychological aspects of the Temple Vie programme. I shall be working as a counsellor, rather than as a doctor, in the expectation that addressing some of the psychological issues involved in overeating - hugely common but so often ignored in other weight loss programmes - will help our patients to live fitter, slimmer and happier lives.
