how to count Distinct Rows

Hello,

 

I have a dataset that looks like this:

Client IDEvent Attended
123456councelling
123456job search
123456job search
123456resume help
123456resume help
123456resume help
123456career advice
123456 career advice

 

as you can see, the client has attended 4 events how can I make this dataset to look like this:

 

Client IDEvent AttendedDistinct number of events
123456councelling4
123456job search4
123456job search4
123456resume help4
123456resume help4
123456resume help4
123456career advice4
123456 career advice4

 

I tried the COUNTROW function but it counts the duplicate events too (note: I do not want to delete the duplicate events since the date attended is different for each event)

 

thank you
