Sinistral or Counterclockwise

Fig. 5- Sinistral shearing stresses are represented, as sinistral fault, by two opposite arrows, one above and the other below the plane, indicating that the upper part is displaced to the left.

They are sinistral or counterclockwise when the upper side of the surface is sheared to the left, that is to say, in opposite direction to that in which the hands of a clock rotate as viewed from in front.
