It is unfortunate that the debt review carried on without your consent. I would suggest that you schedule a meeting or talk to someone senior at the firm. Not sure who your debt counsellors are.
If deductions are being made it means that they have submitted a debt review payment plan to the PDA. If they have not done a payment plan that is presented to court it means that your money is still with the PDA. The PDa needs a payment plan to tell them exactly how to make payments to the creditors.
Ask the Dc for a full recon of your account so you can see what they did with your money. If the money is lying in a suspense account with the PDA they will have to refund you immediately.
Please let me know if you struggle to sort this out.
