One problem with a lot of bosses in Elden Ring is the lack of attack delay. It makes the fights feel more fluid, but also more frustrating. For Rennala it's especially so, because she can just spam spells at you--most of which are homing.
My advice? Poise break or bust. Get a weapon that can shatter her stance so she can't let off spell chains.
If you don't have a build around that, try Banished Knight Engvall. He's tanky during the early game and does a lot of poise damage with his halberd, with the added bonus of getting to watch him give children the people's elbow during the 1st phase. If you can't obtain that, the Lone Wolves summon also helps thanks to their staggering effect.
Blood loss also works quite well, from what i've heard. Bloodhound's fang or a greatsword with Bloody Slash from the Fort Haight questline should do the trick.
Cheers, and happy godslaying
