Poor shifting using shimano SLX derailleur on Norco charger 7.1 2015

I had a problem with my my rear derailleur not shifting into easier gears once I've shifted into a harder gear.
It would struggle to get into an easier gear i.e. the chain just keeps skipping

AFAIK I then add more cable tension i.e. wind the barrel adjuster away from the handle bars. There is no adjuster on the derailleur.

Now the deraileur won't shift into harder gears. AFAIK thats because there is too much tension now.
But I can't seem to find a happy medium where it works both ways.

What am I doing wrong?
