I think the closest place to you is AMD Essex. There may be others but they have done other cars before and so know what they are doing.

VRS in Northampton also do this, if you fancy a trip.

If you are mechanically inclined and willing to take the plunge you can do the decarb yourself. Look up Greg on YouTube he has the various steps. It includes getting an air compressor, grit blaster pot, walnut shell grit, shop vacuum, and making up a suitable blasting tip with EBay bits. It involves removal of inlet manifold and frankly this job can grow arms and legs as it exposes the oil filter housing - a likely area for oil leaks down the front of the engine, so makes sense to remove and replace those notorious o-rings while in there. In addition you may consider removing and servicing all 10 injectors, a project in itself, which makes for a more thorough job. And to add to that, as the inlet manifold is off you may also replace the two upper Lambda sensors at the rear of the engine, and you will likely need a suitable socket tool due to the constrained workspace - after all this was done on my S8, the car runs very smooth and performance felt improved.
If not so inclined - consider the expanded scope above as my oil filter housing was leaking, and all my injectors were not squirting properly and I actually ended up replacing 4 and rebuilt 6. Good luck!
