SOunds like very vague therapy. One of the things I like about proper Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ( CBT ) is that it doesn't just wander around endlessly in a fog. After the initial assessment, you and your therapist should agree on what the target problems are, draw up an agenda for issues to be dealt wioth and homework you would need to do, and work on it. Sessions would be regular and always progress woduld be assessed, in relation to the agreed goals. Therapy that has no clearly defined goals and objectives, and with iregular sessions, usually is useless.
Even if competent therapy, one may occasionalyl reach a plateau when there seems to be a pause in one's progress --- but then, with a competent therapist, this in itself is something you analyize together and revise the plan
