Tracking in After effects using Mocha. (Optical flares)

Ok, excuse the noob question, I am new to both AE and mocha and I am also hopeless at explaining stuff.

So, I have a flare I want to track to a specific point on an opening clip I have, I am using the optical flares plugin on a black layer set to transparent, I then created a null, copied the track data to that and parented it to the flare layer.

All is good and the flare tracks in 3d space, BUT how do I reposition the flare as it is tracked to the tracking data in mocha and is not exactly where I want it to be. I guess what im saying is how do I change the track centre without having to track the EXACT point I want the flare to be?

Made a right mess trying to explain that, but hope someone gets me. 😂
