Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

You can't really do this for columns because Jira does not hold any data for columns.  When it needs to show you a column, it looks at the current status of all the issues and sorts them into the columns as currently mapped

But you can do it for status (which ultimately leads to your columns, even if you redefine the columns with different status!)

Without any apps:

  • Create a numeric field for each status you want to track
  • Create an automation that triggers when you move an issue into a status you want to track.  Read the relevant field and write back current value + 1

With an app (Scriptrunner, JMWE, Powerscripts etc)

  • Create a numeric field for each status you want to track
  • Add a post-function to each transition into the status you want to track which increments the relevant field (soon to be a one-line script in SR, like it is in Jira Server
  • OR, created a scripted field that reads the issue history

You're getting soft @Nic Brough -Adaptavist-  - you didn't even ask to not be shouted at.  :-)

It only bothers me when it stops me being able to read the question (the content, not the summary, which I tend not to read anyway) :-)
