Villa were hammered by the Toffees on Saturday, in a match which exposed all their flaws.
And Garde says that he may have to change what Villa are working on in training, after watching his side capitulate so badly.
“Confidence is not very high, but it hasn’t been, we knew that. It hasn’t been reduced more,” he said. “I have to find different words, I have to instill more confidence by offering a different approach, different words.
“I don’t believe that punishing them is the way to go, it’s not my way. The planning session has been given to the players a week ago and I won’t change.
“What we will do in training may change because of what I saw in this match, but I know I won’t change.”
Villa were absolutely dominated by Everton at Goodison Park, and their performance highlighted why they are at sitting at the bottom of the Premier League at the moment.
The Claret and Blues were miles off the pace, and they failed to deal with the Toffees’ slick passing style.
Everton’s Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku both scored braces in the contest, with the defeat making Villa’s task of staying up look even tougher.
Villa are currently five points away from safety, and they are now winless in their last 12 Premier League matches.
