"IAPT programme - CBT was clearly inappropriate"

I have just undergone nine sessions of CBT in Macclesfield with a therapist. She has told me that it simply is not working and I need something more, which would be helpful, I suspect.
My belief is that it was extremely clear around session three that the therapy was unsuitable but the whole procedure has been dragged out producing no change and rather more "morbidity" in relation to the original condition.
I think that a more thorough assessment of the original condition could have obviated the need for this.
This has left me feeling quite despondent and the service providers are now scratching around trying to find me psychotherapy that can be delivered outside my working hours.
Do I take it that I am likely to be consigned to the back of a lengthy waiting list? If so, then perhaps someone might wish to tell me in advance so that I can make alternative arrangements.
