No matter who you are, you will experience obstacles and challenges throughout your life. However, there are some social groups that experience life quite differently from the majority of people in the broader society.
Black individuals, particularly, black people within the African diaspora face a plethora of setbacks that come from simply living while black. Often, black individuals find it necessary to seek out help to deal with issues ranging from overt and masked aggression to feelings of despair that are exacerbated by the structure of their society.
When a black individual enlists the help of black life coaches, they have the comfort and confidence that in addition to the fundamental knowledge of life coaching, the black coach can also empathize with their mutual social culture, and understand how that shapes the thoughts and experiences they are describing. This nuance of mutual experiences, augurs well for the black coach’s ability to help resolve the concerns of their black clients.
