Check out VNC - you run a "server" on the remote side, and the VNC
client on the client side. The advantage is that everything you run
stays running on the remote side.
I use this setup all the time for a security-conscious Fortune 100
company I consult for, as well as personally.
Now, of course, it can be argued that VNC has it's security problems,
some of which stem from X11 itself. For example, I can't tell you how
many people do an "xhost +" either manually or (to my horror) in
.vnc/xstartup - But that's X11's problem not VNC.
Add "ssh -X" to all of this.
