If this debt existed when you went into the IVA it should have been declared and included then. It might be possible to include it now, but that might also derail the IVA for the non-disclosure. If the debt has accrued since starting the IVA it cannot now be included. Personasly I would make every effort to pay the debt off from allowances (which might mean living on beans for a while) and then look at changing suppliers. Don't forget the new supplier will credit check you and might refuse.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
