I am wondering if anyone has any experience regarding improving the
noise insulation of a party wall , or know any good companies in the
UK. I am trying to reduce door closing sounds rather than music.

Is that a party wall between dwellings, or a party wall between two
parts of the same dwelling? What is the wall made of?
The main things that reduce sound transmission through any wall is (a)
airtightness and (b) weight. After that, adding sound-absorbent
material also helps to a lesser extent.
So, if it is studwork, fill the cavity with something heavy - like
sand or concrete. If it is solid brick or blockwork, one thing you
might sonsider is covering the wall in bookshelves and fill the
shelves with books.
