Counting records

I'm creating a form to capture data that includes the name of the person completing the form.

The info on the form will then be reviewed and categorised.

What I want to do is count up the number of times a named person appears and also do this by the various categories.

The problem I have is that, whist I know the categories, the names can be anything. I can use COUNTIFS, but as I will not know the names beforehand I'm a bit stuck?

Is there a formula or function to do this?

Thanks for any help.
