You can do something or say something to counter something else. If you do something to counter an action or process, it means you do something to make it less effective or to have the opposite effect. For example, traffic jams could be countered by persuading more drivers to use public transport or even bicycles.

When you counter something that another person has said, it means that you say something shows that you disagree with them, or that proves that they are wrong. For example, I countered what my boss had told me and let her know her that the information she had was not the most up-to-date.
