You can't prevent it. Torches are aggressive by nature and require proper distance between other corals. By no means should you cut them to prevent it...

torches should have a 6 / 8 inch buffer in every direction away from any coral
cutting a torch could put toxins into the water
another way to resolve your issue is trade it in for a different type of coral
