I've found the techniques learnt in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to be helpful with intrusive, negative thoughts. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is also useful, but I seem to reach for my box of DBT tricks when in a state of acute distress. Doing CBT exercises seems to make things worse, as I end up in a state of constant arguing with my thoughts which is distressing in itself.

Pharmacologically, low-dose Lithium helped, especially with persistent thoughts of suicide. It sounds like you should first investigate the Klonopin angle, though.
