Protection spells come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. There are various ways of protecting yourself from witchcraft or removing negative influences from your life. To simply get someone out of your life, someone who may just be annoying or bothersome and not any real threat to you, a banishing spell is your easiest option. It causes no harm to the other person and simply gives them a magickal push away. For something a little stronger, you can go with binding charms to prevent them from acting against you. If the problem is more aggressive, and you think someone has cast a negative ritual against you, then you would want to take a different approach. You can either try a curse-breaking ritual to counter-act any hex or black magic used against you. Or you can actually reverse the ritual and send the negative energy right back to the person who sent it.
