VectorStyle -> "LeftArrow".

Do be honest, though, I find ListVectorPlot so difficult to use for these
simple vector visualization cases that I typically just construct it myself.

myListVectorPlot[data : {{{_, _}, {_, _}}?MatrixQ ..}] := 
 Graphics[Arrow[{#[[1]], #[[1]] + #[[2]]}] & /@  data]  

(*Insert styling as desired,like ColorData[1][1] to reproduce the Plot default
