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.


Gillian Walker

Front of House

Hi, I'm Gillian and work as Front of House supporting the Temple Vie programme, you will probably see me buzzing about helping out in every way I can with the smooth running of the clinic. It's been a great experience learning what Temple Vie has to offer - I have been impressed to see how patients grow in confidence during their weight loss journey and I am excited to be part of that support.

Outside of work I enjoy travelling and love spending time with my family.


Magda Zielinska


Hi I’m Magda, I undertook my Beauty Therapist training at Aberdeen College and then I worked in beauty retail for almost 10 years.

I started working as a Temple Vie therapist in 2021. I see patients on a weekly basis to carry out LPG treatments and to support them through their weight loss journey. Working with patients is the part I enjoy the most – I love sharing in their journey and feel privileged to share in their success. I can see how the Temple Vie programme can help people rediscover their zest for life!!

When I’m not in the clinic I love spending time with my young kids and my husband. We love to travel and I keep a photographic record of everything I can.

Lauren Rennie


Lauren started working as a therapist in March 2022. She came with 8 years’ experience of working in beauty and now felt ready to step up to another level of patient care

She splits her time at Temple between skin-related concerns and weight management. As a Temple Vie therapist, this involves supporting patients and delivering LPG therapy as they progress through the Temple Vie weight management programme.

Her skin therapist role includes delivering clinically effective treatments that can dramatically improve skin health. This includes peels, medical grade facials, light therapy and hydra facials. For Lauren, no two days are ever the same!

Lauren has found that the most rewarding part of her job is seeing a patient's confidence improving, either as they lose weight or as their skin transforms. Part of her role involves supporting people as they learn how to make changes to their lifestyle. She cannot help taking her newfound knowledge out of the clinic and often finds herself advising friends and family whilst nudging her young daughter into more healthy eating habits!

Out of work she loves spending time with her daughter and is on a mission to rediscover her love for yoga and the gym.
