In brief: CBT

I assume a mental health professional has diagnosed you correctly and recommended cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy (cbt).
Aaron beck, md devised a therapeutic technique whereby one replaces problematic, maladaptive, "automatic" thoughts with logical adaptive thoughts causing changes in one's mood in a more positive and productive direction. A simple technique that requires effort but it works.

In brief: Visit a psychiatrist

The first thing you should do is visit a psychiatrist so they can appropriately diagnose you.
There are many psych disorders that can present with "neurotic thoughts" like generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, etc. For some of these disorders, medications may work but for others, psychological interventions may work more effectively.
