How can I help myself and change my behavior?

I've hit my head on walls and floors ever since I was young. I sometimes still do it but I don't exactly know why,

I have anxiety and I had a rough childhood but now I'll start to hit my head and sometimes not realize it but I don't know how to stop or even why I'm doing it.

How can I help myself to change my behavior?

Over the years, it has been shown that cognitive behavioral therapy is an effective method for assisting individuals in recognizing and altering the behaviors that they engage in. However, despite the fact that everyone has the potential to benefit from treatment, it seems that some individuals naturally possess the skills necessary for effective therapy while others do not.
