Make sure everything is committed to your branch and then just use
Team->Switch to switch your working copy back to trunk. Then do Team ->

If your branch only contains the changes for that branch, meaning you did
not merge any changes in trunk to the branch, then enter the URL for the
branch as the From/To URL. Press the Show Log button and select all of
the revisions that were made on that branch (except for the one that
created the branch). This will in the revision info correctly and then
press OK to run the merge.

If your branch has been synching with trunk, then enter the URL of trunk
as the From URL, and the last revision from trunk that you synched with as
the From Revision. Enter the URL of the branch as the To URL and HEAD as
the To Revision. Then press OK.

The help linked with the dialog has more in depth explanations.
