Anger issues

My husband has severe temper problem. He gets extremely angry for petty issues and might even indulge in physical harm too. It doesn't matters who's in front of him, be it his parents , me or any stranger, he gets into physical altercation. I asked him to see a psychologist for anger management classes but he promised me he'll try to control his anger. But recently again he indulged in the same. It's getting difficult for me to control everything. Can someone suggest how to go about anger management? Or what should be the first step for this problem?

Adhd or anxiety

My issues on my inability to focus or pay attention to my surroundings had never really hindered my life in any way.

On top of that, the subtle anxieties I have been living with also seem to have become more prominent. My perceived lack of confidence and self-esteem is affecting the interactions and decisions I encounter daily.
