I have done private consulting for the last 5 months of the 2013 tax year. I have not been formally employed for this period. What can I deduct against professional fees earned? Home office? All travel to and from clients using vehicle cost tables? Cell Phone (ratio business/personal call accepted or actual business calls only)? Other?

All business related expenses provided you can show proof of these expenses. Home office and cell phone would be limited to the business use in terms of calls and space within your home. The actual mobile device cost would be based on a ratio such as business/total calls.
