sound attenuation in ceilings

Dear all,
this isn't strictly a research based question, but if you don't mind...

A friend of mine has bought an appartment in a large house in London - one of the many conversions of an old turn of century house. His appartment is on the ground floor and he can clearly hear his neighbours' footsteps and conversations from the floor above.

Can anyone suggest how soundproofing/attenuation can be done simply and cost-effectively? or any web-sites of any use for further information?

Best of all: UK companies specialising in appropriate solutions?

Many thanks
