Jos Luhukay says the players must help themselves in order to turn around the current run of form.
As the boss aims to fashion a positive end to the campaign, he says levels of confidence, belief and trust must rise in the group.
The Owls have ten games left of the season and take on a Bolton side close by in the league table on Saturday.
As the Dutchman plots a return to winning ways in difficult circumstances, he said:
“It’s not so easy for the team or players but we can only help ourselves to come to better moments.
“We know the situation, we have ten games left to play and in that time we want to put ourselves in a better place.
“The confidence of the players is very important. We are working on that, I have spoken with them this week to find a way to achieve this together.
“We are working hard to give the players the confidence but you also need results to come back to the good feeling.”
He continued: “I’ve known from the first day it is not an easy situation
“The players are giving 100%, I see it every day. But when you don’t have the results, that’s when you get the negative feeling but you must handle that.
“In football there is always pressure. For me this is not a problem as long as we give everything we have.”
