First we need to know type of this motor
-induction motor or brushed type .
Both can be found several types again.
Is there dataplate in motor, what are markings and text in this plate
and if you can tell us, how many connection points and wires are in connection box of this motor
and what are markings there.
Better is , if you can send a drawning or photo of connection box and dataplate.

if it is a single phase ac motor with capacitor in it , interchange the two auxiliary winding connection for changing the direction of rotation.

Not arguing with the other more knowledgeable posts. Just in case this helps...

I once wanted to get opposite rotation from an AC motor (3/4 HP or so). I called an electrician and asked if he could rewire it. He said 'look for a switch-lever on the housing to change direction.'

I looked all around and there it was. I flipped it and it did the job.

I agree with FvM.

It's direction can only be reversed by disassembling the motor and turning the stator packet over, if it's built symmetrically.
Rotor turns to original direction in stator, but power is taken out opposite end of motor.
