If I were you I'd apply for a job elsewhere in another company, get an offer (that's hopefully better than what you're getting now), hand in your notice, and see if your current employers make a counter-offer.

I 100% agree with this. A business owner will pay you as little as they can without you running out the door. I don't know what your industry is but for managing that number of staff you definitely deserve a higher salary.
I don't know how hard it is for you to apply elsewhere but I would move heaven and earth to get an offer, get accepted and then go back to your current employer with the news. If you're as important as I believe you are they will stump up the money. They won't want to start promoting a 19 year old who barely passed the interview.

Rounds aren't a great thing as it can put pressure on people to drink more than they would normally do. I don't know if it is just an Irish thing as in many other countries people just buy their own.....which is more sensible really.

Professional help is the way to go. Counseling is the first option. Maybe look up some counseling options in your area and present those to her.

She goes to a Councillor, she dumped 3 or 4 of them initially as she didn't like them. However, I would say its more like she didn't like the questions they were asking. I am fairly sure she is not telling current Councillor the truth and I certainly see no evidence that Councillor is  making any progress with her.

You see there was tragedy in the family when she was a child, I am sure that's some of the root of the issue but she will never talk about it.

Itchy as a family all you can do is support her. Thereís only so much you can do. She has the support structures around her and if she is dumping the counsellors as you say then she is not ready to get better. I would see if there is anyone who she can trust but she has to want to make the ch age herself. This may sound a bit cold but you canít do it for her. Provide her with the professional supports you can, mind her as best as you can but ultimately she needs to make the decision

Can someone explain to me how extending the exit period helps solve any problems?

The way to do Brexit was develop a policy, get the party united  behind it and win a general election on it.
They won a wafer thin margin in a referendum. Brexit means Brexit because they couldnít agree what
Brexit meant. They still canít.

Off the top of my head:
Bonner (Celtic)
Hughton/Morris (Spurs/Celtic)
O'Leary/McGrath (Arsenal/Man United)
McCarthy/Moran (Celtic/Man United)
Staunton (Liverpool)
Houghton (Liverpool)
Townsend (Chelsea/Villa)
Whelan/Sheedy (Liverpool/Everton)
Quinn/Cascarino (Arsenal/Villa)
Aldridge (Liverpool)

There is some drop off in Irish representation in the top teams in Britain, even with Celtic.
Charlton had it good.
Everything changed after 1995

In companies like this often theres a handful of people know how to actually get $hit done.  If some of these key folks quit, management may be forced to put in some type of retention package to keep the rest happy.  It can pay (no pun intended) to be the last man standing

In my line of work, if theyre not paying you (going or market rate) its expected that people are going to start looking around for a better opportunity.

I think its career suicide to hand in your notice and then accept a counter offer?
Your employers will keep you on, yes, but they'll know you're not happy or loyal and have now just bought themselves some time to find your replacement?
As soon as they do then you're gone, on their terms, not your own...with no job to walk in to

Depends who you're working for. If you're working for some bitter and twisted individual then you'd be right, but in a normal company a counter-offer is a perfectly valid business practice.
