Hello.

Looking for help on how to get through to my brother. he was a married man with 4 kids and after cheating on his wife with prostitutes turned abusive towards his partner. he has refused help or speaking to someone professionally.

Well, it's hard to help someone, if they're completely unwilling- does he have an addiction to illicit sex, now?

By his own admission he used it(the prostitutes) as a way of punishing his wife when there was a breakdown in the relationship or issues. His words, "well she did something to upset me, so i did something to upset her"
